The sculptor of L’Oceania was Mathurin Moreau.
I’m finally getting around to sketching the last two of the Six Continent Sculptures at the entrance of Musee d’Orsay. I saw them in Paris on a visit last month. I sketched the first four referenced below based on my own photos from the visit. For L’Oceania I had to use a photo off the Internet. I didn’t photograph the last two. I’m not sure why.
Now only L’Europe is left.
9”x 12” fountain pen and chalk on toned grey paper.


  1. beautifully drawn, i know Ygraine will be sorry she missed it, she can always go back to see it..

  2. Ha...Ygraine managed to visit before she headed off to the wilds!!

    This is indeed beautifully drawn...she is amazing.
    I see her as a Guardian, in the corner of my bedroom...have no idea why...she just exudes such power...:)

    1. I’m so glad you visited before you trip.. Maybe I’ll have L’Europe done before you return.
      Thank you

  3. Wonderful sculpture drawing with great details !!!
    Happy weekend Anthony !!!
