World Cup '74 Portrait #164 (Paulo Cesar: Brazil)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

Continuing the drawing project with another early Tuesday morning session & the subject of Paulo Cesar, who was represented in both the FKS & Panini World Cup ’74 sticker albums & chosen as a member of the official Brazil squad for the Finals, where he went on to appear in 5 of his country’s matches, memorably so in that his was one of the relatively few names present that registered during my experience of the televised coverage of the tournament, being possessed, one recalls, of a certain flamboyance that enabled him & his name to stand out from the generality of the masses (like others of his Brazilian teammates such as Francisco Marinho, Jairzinho & Rivelino).
