Architectural Drawings

 

Graphite on cardstock, approximately 8 x 9 inches, winter 2014.

This master study of a drawing from a John Boardman text is meant to draw attention to the fascinating architectural achievement of the double roof of the Athenian Acropolis’ Propylaea, as well as the genius of it’s creator, Mnesicles. My drawing was created for, and as a tribute to, Mnesicles’ modern-day equivalent, Tasos Tanoulas.
