World Cup '74 Portrait #103 (Jupp Heynckes: West Germany)
graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm
The subject of our drawing project today is a representation of Jupp Heynckes, a name one suspects only came to attention post the 1974 World Cup (whilst playing in European club football for Borussia Monchengladbach), during which the player appeared in West Germany’s opening two matches, against Chile & Australia, before retiring with injury at half –time in the latter, not to feature in the Finals again.
As an established international, stickers featuring Jupp/Josef Heynckes were included in both the FKS & Panini albums previewing the tournament, the former providing the original source material in this instance.
