The dimensions for this work are given as "Sheet: 695 x 937 mm." - in other words, almost one meter wide if the drawing itself is that size. Pretty large for a pastel, given how detailed this drawing is and the fragile nature of that medium.

Like yesterday, the raw image is twice the size that it is actually displayed at. Here's a link to the raw jpeg file.
