In 1950, Marcel Duchamp assisted his primary patrons, collectors Louise and Walter Arensberg, in negotiating the gift of their distinguished collection to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This exclusive Blackwing set honors the titles of 12 important works by Duchamp at our world-renowned museum; its black-and-white design celebrates the artist’s lifelong love of chess.
The Blackwing cult phenomenon dates back to the 1930’s and has been a long-time favorite of artists of all types including John Steinbeck, Leonard Bernstein, Looney Tunes animator Chuck Jones, and Disney animator Shamus Culhane. The Blackwing pencil is easily recognized by the unique rectangular ferrule and known for its quality, Northwestern Cedar body and smooth- writing graphite.
Perfect for writing or sketching, these extra-firm graphite pencils come beautifully boxed and are perfect for gift giving. Its lead is placed at an HB grade.
