A SPECTACULAR WORKING DRAWING FROM 'SOBRIETY, OBESITY & GROWING OLD', Kentridge's fourth (and some would say best) film.
This drawing appears from 4:51 to 4:56.

On thick Rives wove paper.
The numerous redrawings and erasures integral to Kentridge's filmmaking method have agitated the surface of the paper considerably, making it three-dimensional. At one point Kentridge wore a tiny hole through the paper, repaired by the artist himself. Overall in excellent condition.

This drawing comes from the collection of one of the earliest collectors of Kentridge's work, who recognized the artist's importance long before he became famous.
