A Sculptor’s Drawings

Antonietta Raphaël

I have always been intrigued by the drawings of sculptors. Their final product is three-dimensional, and yet their drawings used for planning purposes are two-dimensional.

Here, the sculptor seems to be drawing how she wants light to fall upon a sculpted work. The eyes and texture on the gown in the drawing are particularly effective for this.

It is also interesting to me how the two-dimensional drawing and three dimensional sculpture are easily identified as being by the same hand even though they are of different subjects using completely different media.
