Subject

Fredericks, Marshall M., 1908-1998

Description

Graphite on tracing paper
12" x 15"

Cervantes' Don Quixote de la Mancha is a masterpiece of world literature. It is as well known and loved today as when it was first issued in 1605. Cervantes glorified Knight Errantry with his parody of the romances of chivalry. Don Quixote and his faithful squire Sancho Panza roamed the Spanish countryside in search of adventures.

Fredericks' sculpture relays the whimsical quality of Don Quixote in his expression, posture, and in the method he is modeled. The form is highly stylized and hard-edged. The surface is smooth and there are few details.

Drawing also includes three pages of Marshall Fredericks' writing. Transcript included.
