Eagle One Dollar Coin Sketch, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, 1965-1990

Description (Brief)
Using tracing paper, Gasparro could place one sheet over a drawing and make incremental changes without having to recreate the whole drawing. In this manner Gasparro reversed the eagle in this sketch from facing right to facing left.
In this small group of artwork by Frank Gasparro are five different drawings showing the variations and stages Gasparro developed in eagle designs.
