This is a graphite on paper (Medium tooth sketch paper 68lb Size : 8.5×11 inches) drawing of the french designer Coco Chanel (She started the brand Chanel).
An interesting fact is that she managed to start a luxury brand and be a fashion icon while being born in a poorhouse (government-run facility ), loosing her mother at 12, and spending the rest of her childhood in an orphanage because her dad had to leave to work to earn money to feed the family. She had 5 siblings.
