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.
