Glyptotek Drawings [28]

Charcoal on plastic sheet
22 1/2 x 11 inches
Item description: 

While the majority of the Glyptotek Drawings were inspired by antique marbles, this is one of two drawings based on terra cotta Tanagra figurines. Named after the site in central Greece where thousands of such figures were unearthed, these small sculptures depict draped women, often wearing a hat and holding a fan.
