Glyptotek Drawings [8]

Charcoal and spray paint on paper
17 1/2 x 12 7/8 inches
Item description: 

Dine drew these three studies of the head of Socrates, the fourth- century B.C.. philosopher, from the same frontal viewpoint, but he worked them to various degrees. Dine directly applied spray enamel onto the sheet, creating a burst of rich black in the top right corner.
