From the archive: a few early drawings

I have found a few early drawings, mainly from my teens.

When I was nineteen, I was accepted into a prestigious juried exhibition in Norway (Høstutstillingen) with a self-portrait in charcoal made when I was sixteen. The drawing has been lost, but I did find this copy of a newspaper article and slides of the drawing.

These are a few of hundreds of drawings where I copied the old masters. I suspect the second drawing is from life or a photo I took of my father.

I think this may be a copy of a drawing by Michelangelo.

A composition sketch from – I think – an etching by Rembrandt.
