[curving forms in skein shape]

c. 1948 

 Ink. 12½ x 9in. (31.8 x 22.9cm.) Provenance NT. This ink drawing can be dated ca. 1948 on the basis of the graphic style. An automatic ink line that consists of arabesques and curlicues has then been developed to reveal more recognisable forms. In this case, male genitalia trapped in a mesh bag. There are similarities with Sardine and Eggs (c. 1941).
