Glyptotek Drawings [27]

Lithographic crayon, charcoal, and enamel paint on plastic sheet
14 3/4 x 13 inches
Item description: 

Dine chose to work on translucent paper and plastic sheets to give the drawings "some sense of light." These unconventional supports allowed for little absorption and afforded the artist a great degree of creative play. He manipulated the unfixed materials with a variety of tools—from erasers and knives to his own fingers. Here, Dine's incorporation of random effects can be seen in the line of fixative that runs directly down the center of the sheet.
