In this minimal sketch from 1979, Charles Blackman draws a woman embracing herself. It is a tender and elegant moment, a character detail transcribed from a keen observer.
Newly framed and from the artist’s archive, ‘Untitled (Self Embrace)’ is a reminder to be kind to yourself. It will charm collectors of Blackman and rare drawings.
