Glyptotek Drawings [6]

Charcoal and lithographic crayon on paper
14 3/4 x 10 3/4 inches
Item description: 

Of his process, Dine has said: "In a drawing, I dig into the paper with marks for the ultimate emotional impact." For all the Glyptotek Drawings, Dine chose to work solely with black media. The white patches highlighting the figure at her nape, forehead, and behind her hair are the result of the artist abrading the surface with a knife or scraper.
