Adam Dant
Arch of Titus (Italy), 2004
Ink on paper
43 x 35 cm framed

Price: £2000 framed

One of a series of six sepia ink drawings capturing the "most curious sites" that Adam Dant encountered during his three week stay at the British School in Rome in 2004. Dant was inspired by Goya's sketchbook albums created over thirty years from 1796. Within them Goya observed the attitudes and occupations of everyday people around Spain. As with Goya's revolutionary depiction of humanity, Dant's drawings reveal a vast and fascinated imagination seized by the charm of day-to-day life.
