World Cup '74 Portrait #156 (Wilner Nazaire: Haiti)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

A disappointingly slow week for the drawing project & the getting-on-with, but here is the latest subject, Wilner Nazaire, who was represented in both the FKS & Panini World Cup ’74 sticker albums (the latter featuring only a reduced six-man selection for Haiti), chosen for the official Haitian squad & subsequently played, as captain, in all three matches at the tournament, being substituted after 25 minutes of the last, the 1 – 4 defeat to Argentina that followed the earlier losses to Italy (1 – 3) & Poland (0 – 7).
