World Cup '74 Portrait #217 (Hector Yazalde: Argentina)
graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm
The second of this new year’s drawings features as its portrait subject Hector Yazalde, who was represented in the Panini ’München 74’ sticker album – which image thus serves as our original source material - & chosen as a member of the official Argentina squad for the Finals, at which he subsequently played in 3 matches, scoring twice in the 4 -1 victory over Haiti.
A re-mediation of the same original image of Hector Yazalde was the subject of a drawing in an earlier version of the World Cup ’74 project, & can be found here.
