Charles Blackman stands among Australia's most beloved and collectable artists. With a career as distinct as it is diverse, Blackman has a knack of teasing out universal truths through his own unsparing candour.
This delightful drawing comes from the time of Charles Blackman's Paris sojourn. In 1971, he was awarded a studio in the Cite des Artes, Paris. Here, Charles submerged into his Parisian practice - revelling in what would represent his golden period for drawing. During this European residency Charles was introduced to the Rotring pen and it became his drawing tool of choice.
It this drawing Charles leads with feeling, letting the pen follow in poetic rapture. This superb original work of art captures the development of the artist's lifelong affair with drawing, alongside his singular vision for life. From the Blackman family's private collection to yours - this exquisite drawing is sure to be treasured for years to come.
