Pen and ink wash. Signed Sven Berlin.  Framed.


This drawing, originally made in the 1950s, is symbolic of Berlin's understanding of what motivated him, referring to William Blake's words:"My spectre around me night & day, Like a Wild beast guards my way".

A powerful image for the cover of the manuscript of his unpublished book that he was still working on in the 1970s.
