Glyptotek Drawings [23]

Charcoal, spray paint, and india ink on plastic sheet
25 1/2 x 19 5/8 inches
Item description: 

This sheet combines a rich variety of media—india ink, charcoal, and spray paint. In keeping with the fragmented base of the Grave Stele of Artemon, Dine left the lower half of the sheet empty. In contrast, the top is heavily worked and marked by a direct application of spray paint.

Grave Stele of Artemon, ca. 350 B.C.., Glyptothek, Munich
