Drawing of sculptures
In this wonderfully striking drawing, the artist brings these classical statues in a museum to life. The dynamic composition and perspective constructs a narrative in which the sculptures appear to interact with each other, providing an exciting new way of looking at classical art. The dramatic contrast between light and shadow allowed by the medium creates a theatrical result, accentuating the beauty of these Grecian masterpieces.
