World Cup '74 Portrait #173 (Renato: Brazil)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

Coincidental to the previous randomly-chosen portrait subject, this latest drawing in the Project also depicts a reserve goalkeeper in the form of Renato, who was represented as a member of the Brazil squad as featured in the FKS ‘Wonderful World of Soccer Stars World Cup 1974 sticker album & subsequently made the cut for his country’s official selection for the tournament, although he too failed to make an appearance in any of their seven matches.
