L'Amerique du Sud




L’Amerique du Sud

The sculptor of L’Amerique du Sud was Aime Millet.
This is the last of my sketches from my own sketches and reference photos of the Six Continent Sculptures at the entrance of the Musee D’Orsay. There are two sculptures I didn’t get to during my few days in Paris last week, L'Océanie and L'Europe. I may at some point do sketches of the remaining two from photos on the Musee D’Orsay website, just to have sketches of all six.

L'Afrique




L’Afrique


This is a sketch of another of the sculptures in front of the Musse D’Orsay, from the Paris visit of just a few days ago. It is one of the Six Continents Sculptures by the museum entrance.
The sculptor for L’Afrique is Eugene Deleplanche. The six sculptures, all by different sculptors, were in Paris' third World's Fair, the 1878 l'Exposition Universelle.

While in Paris over the last few days, almost a whole day was spent at the Musee D’Orsay. This sketch is of a sculpture by Alexandre Falguiere’s. L’Asie is one of a group of six sculptures called the Six Continents near the entrance to the museum.
