Abstract

William Dobell's sketchbooks of the late 1950s and 1960s represent one of the earliest sustained uses of the ballpoint pen by any artist. Made from images on viewed on television, they are an innovative engagement with new media, and represent a significant shift in the understanding of life drawing and observation.
