Glyptotek Drawings [31]

Charcoal and pastel on plastic sheet
17 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches
Item description: 

Here, Dine used an eraser not only to remove marks but also to manipulate the materials. For instance, the broad strokes of white along the figure's back result from wiping wet charcoal across the surface. The small specks are debris from Dine's eraser. Of these he commented: "I just left my tracks, as I often do."
