Glyptotek Drawings [39]

Charcoal and pastel on plastic sheet
10 1/8 x 8 1/4 inches
Item description: 

In the big hall of Roman portrait heads there must be over one hundred heads. You feel like you're in a crowd of people, but there is nothing heroic about it. It's very much on a human scale, right at the viewer's eye level.

Hall of the Romans, Glyptothek, Munich
