Peasant Woman Nursing Baby




Peasant Woman Nursing Baby


I was at the Victoria and Albert Museum this morning sketching sculptures. The sketch here is of a sculpture by Aime- Jules Dalou (1836-1902).
One of my favorites at the V&A.
9”x 12” fountain pen and chalk on toned grey paper

  1. Bonjour Anthony,

    Une belle esquisse ce cette sculpture qui ravirait son créateur.
    Lorsque j'emmenais mes enfants visiter les musées, ils avaient toujours avec eux un petit carnet de croquis et un crayon. Ils essayaient de dessiner ce qui les touchait le plus à ce moment là. Cela étonnait toujours beaucoup de gens qui les regardaient faire.

    Gros bisous ♡

      Sketching is a good way to feel, to touch the beauty of so many things, especially the art preserved in these museums..

  4. After reading Lorraine's comments, there isn't much more I can add...except the extreme tenderness you have captured with an intensity that brings a lump to my throat.
    Oh this is SO, SO, beautiful. :)

    1. The sculpture really is wonderful.. Just getting the basic likeness, I think, easily draws this praise.
      Thank you
