My Study of Sculpture at 'The Art Institute of Chicago'
Lambert Sigisbert Adam, French 1700-1759
Bust of Amphitrite, C.1725
Terracotta

Dated 08-20-2002.

With Pencil on Paper.
Original Size 6" x 8".

Amphitrate was the wife of Neptune, god of the sea and her tiara of coral pearls, and shell signifies the dominion over the ocean.

This drawing is a result of my study of European Sulpture at The Art Institute of Chicago. This is the first work of my study of sculpture. The original sculpture can be seen in the European Paintings(1600s-1700s) section on the second floor at the Museum.

It took me about half an hour to do this and gave me a chance to take a closer look at a great master piece.

Aristide Maillol, French 1862-1944
Chained Action, C 1906
Bronze
Wirt D.Walker Fund 1955.29

Dated 08-20-2002.

With Pencil on Paper.
Original Size 6" x 8".

Those who have visited The Art Institute of Chicago will remember this sculpture which draws the attention of almost everyone. This helped me study the sculpture of human body and also effect of the light and shadows on the sculpture.

It took me about half an hour from start to finish.

My Study of Sculpture at 'The Art Institute of Chicago'
Antonio Canova, Italian, 1757-1822
Bust of Paris, 1809
Marble

Dated 09-03-2002.

With Pencil on Paper.
Original Size 6" x 8".

Canova carved this bust as a gift of friendship for Quatremere de Quincy, the leading French theorist of Neoclassicism. This statue represents the shepherd Paris, who was called upon by Zues to judge which godess was the most beautiful; his decision ultimately precipitated the Trojan war.

The bust is an idealized head, intended more to demonstrate the sculptor's mastery of form then to represent specific features of the subject.

It took me about half an hour to do this and gave me a chance to take a closer look at a great master piece.

Chauncey Bradley Ives (1810-1894)
Jephtha's Daughter, Marble 1874

Dated Sep-17-2002.

With Pencil on Paper.
Original Size 81/2" x 11".

Jephtha's daughter depicts a character from the old testament book of judges. An Israelite leader engaged in war against the Ammonites. Jeptha promised that if God assured his army victory, he would sacrifice whoever met him upon his return home from battle. For audiences of the day this work represented a form of tragic female bravery; an innocent victim who was virginal, obedient, and ultimately unrewarded. Those who have visited the European Paintings and Sculpture gallery at The Art Institute of Chicago will remember this sculpture.

I drew the back view of this sculpture.

The original sculpture is such a great master piece, that would not stop me study and draw just one view. Planning for more study of this one in coming weeks. Probably I should also draw both front view and side view.

Check here for the side view that I did on the following week.

It took me about an hour from start to finish.
