Charles Blackman stands among Australias 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 drawing from the artist’s sketchbook is of the capricious Puck (or Robin Goodfellow) from William Shakespeares play, A Midsummer Nights Dream. Puck is the miscreant and magical character who sets many of the plays events in motion through his tendency toward making unfortunate mistakes.

A bonafide icon, no history of Australian modernism is replete without Blackman. Beloved for his emotion driven vision, his work brims with life, humility and talent. For lovers and collectors of Blackman and works on paper, behold this work of art. Window mounted, initialed “CB” and provenanced from the Charles Blackman Foundation, this theatrical drawing is sure to be treasured for years to come.
