An original charcoal drawing, ‘Cathedral Window’ is provenanced from Charles Blackman’s private collection. It is gothic splendour — a blackened sky illuminated only by ornate windows, watching like a cat’s eyes. Edgar Allen Poe’s poetry springs to mind, as does Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’.

This work testifies to Blackman’s mastery of affect. Simple yet penetrating, it lingers long after first encounter, recalling the suburban stages his schoolgirls roam, as well as his infatuation with Frances Notre Dame Cathedral.

For collectors of modern art and important works on paper, ‘Cathedral Window’ is a spellbinding find. It is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity from the Charles Blackman Foundation.
