World Cup '74 Portrait #163 (Nelson Vasquez: Chile)




graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

The latest struggle with the pencils & source material has resulted in this study of an image of Nelson Vasquez, as represented in the Panini ’M√ľnchen 74’ sticker album but who was not subsequently selected for inclusion in the official Chile squad for the tournament, being thus another of those particular ‘ghosts’ present in relation to the event only via such memorabilia where, of course, he appears to enjoy equal billing as any other, as indeed this drawing does, as time blurs memory.
