Let’s dance… or draw!


We’re fools whether we dance or not,

I made this woodcut in 1974 after having observed the dancers at the balletschool for a few weeks. I remember that I made many many fast sketches, trying to store each of their movements into my memory so that I could visualise them later again, while working out the final drawing for a woodcut.
