World Cup '74 Portrait #183 (Wilmes Piqueham: Haiti)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

This most recent addition to the drawing project features a representation of the erroneously-named 'Wilmes Piqueham', as sourced from the original sticker of the player as it appeared amongst the Haiti selection in the FKS ‘Wonderful World of Soccer Stars World Cup 1974’ collectors’ album.

Wilner Piquant, as he actually was/is named (on more than one occasion the FKS album played pretty free & easy with players' names but none more than Piquant's), was in fact chosen as a member of the official Haiti squad but, as one of the reserve goalkeepers to first-choice Henri Francillon, did not make a playing appearance at the tournament.
