Lorca and Hands



Lorca could not draw a human hand very well. Even my amateurish sketch of my own hand (see above) is far superior to his, from an anatomical point of view. But Lorca created an intense poetic / visual language in his drawings that even artists far superior to me could not match.

The tension is right there in the word "well". What do we mean when we say someone drew a hand well? The criteria contend. I might unpack it as "drew some shape that was understood to represent a hand, and considered as such a representation it was interesting", but one could no doubt qualify further. (Does Noguchi's bust limn Fuller "well"?)
