Frank Auerbach

Frank Auerbach created the Head of Catherine Lampert VI in 1931. The drawing is charcoal on paper and i found it interesting he only used charcoal and an eraser to create such a vivid picture. Auerbach drew, rubbed the drawing off, wiped it out, and layered charcoal to get the volume of the head in the picture. I also found it very interesting because the drawing is made mostly of lines and eraser marks.
