Cretan Shepherd Boy

13 November 1948
Conté pencil on paper laid on card
Lent by the estate of John Craxton

Craxton wrote: ‘I arrived in Greece knowing I couldn’t draw but I would sit down in front of a man, say in a marketplace surrounded by hoards of children, and somehow think myself into the man, allowing his image into my personality and then drawing almost unconsciously.’
