*Was really enjoying myself at the MET this summer. The corridor filled with Rodin's work in marble, clay, and bronze... Not to mention Lepage's Joan of Arc! The sculpture I've drawn here is a small head study/sketch which is behind a bit of glass along with a small bronze Head of Balzac and several other seemingly preparatory works, and sometimes I find that I'll be pouring over these fragments as much as I will be his Age of Bronze... Drawing clay thats been pushed and pulled around but not "finished," is a pleasure.
