The Sylvia Plath Sketches Collection is Delicate and Detailed

The Sylvia Plath Sketches collection, previously on display at London's Mayor gallery, is a delicate and precise assortment of pen-and-ink drawings that truly exhibit the writer's range of creative talent.

The pieces were recently revived and put on display after the late author's passing and feature sailboats, cats, jewelry, jugs and other everyday objects drawn against a plain backdrop.

Although each piece is simple in its subject matter, the attention to detail that the creator paid to each drawing is impressive, especially considering Plath's limited used of drawing utensils.

While none of the sketches are particularly extraordinary, it is the way that the mundane is crafted with such a keen eye for precision that makes each piece interesting to observe. Stats for Poet-Rendered Pen-And-Ink Pictures Trending: Older & Chilly
