World Cup '74 Portrait #216 (Fabio Capello: Italy)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

Kicking-off the new year (& wishing a happy one to all) with a continuation of the current drawing project & in this particular instance a re-mediation of an image of Fabio Capello, who was featured in both the FKS & Panini World Cup ’74 commemorative sticker albums, & included in the Italy squad for the Finals themselves, where he went on to play in each of the Italians’ 3 ultimately unsuccessful First Round group matches, scoring the late merely consolatory goal in the 1 – 2 defeat to Poland that sealed the Azzurri’s early elimination from the tournament.
