Graphite on cream wove paper, 10×15″ (26x37cm)

In the collection of the Yale Center for British Art. In addition to a zoom, the museum’s page includes a download link from which you can download medium-resolution (1mb) and high-resolution (18mb) versions of the image.

Also available on the Google Art Project and Wikimedia Commons (hi-res 6mb).

In the midst of all of the options for traditional and digital media available today, it’s sometimes easy to overlook the wonders of the humble pencil.
