Glyptotek Drawings [3]

Charcoal, lithographic crayon, and enamel paint on paper
17 1/4 x 13 inches
Item description: 

Dine's enthusiasm for materials and process is evident in the large, inky fingerprints (near the swaths of charcoal in the upper right corner) and in the abraded surface. He sanded the sheet with an emery board and picked at it with an etching-plate scraper and razor blade "to put more light into the drawing."
