Head of Catherine Lampert VI

This drawing is titled "Head of Catherine Lampert VI". This drawing was created by Frank Auerbach in 1979. The media used in this drawing are charcoal on paper. This piece incorporates the elements of line and value. I found this drawing interesting because at first glance the drawing appears to be a composition of random lines, however if you look closely a face appears in the drawing. The artist uses the elements of both line and value to create an abstract face in the drawing.
