Richard Serra: Drawings for the courtauld

Richard Serra, born in 1938, is probably most known for big steel sculptures. At the Somerset House, London, he presents ten drawings which are the result of a research with Mylar sheets. Throughout different layers of this transparent sheet, he is able to give a different deepness or ''transparency'', as called by the artist. The result is a series of whirls and thick layers of black matter which lies on a thin layer of transparent material.
