This drawing is Domenico Gargiulo's Charioteer. This drawing is a 17th century small drawing, only about 5inches by 5inches. Gargiulo's medium was pen and brown ink. This drawing is known as a gesture drawing, meaning, using rapidly drawn lines to express and define space, volume, and movement. This type of style pertains to this weeks sketch book assignment. I chose this drawing because I like how the use of simple strokes of a pen can convey such fluid movement, only using an outline of the person and the chariot.
