More Rodin Sketches Before the Exhibit Ended

Before leaving for a weekend with our son and his family in DC, I sketched two more Rodin sculptures before the exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art closed.  I walked the corridor that houses the Met's Rodin collection many times every year, and until I go back to the Museum, I won't know whether these two pieces that are owned by the Met will still be on view. 

I loved this marble sculpture of Orpheus and Eurydice, it is beautiful from almost every angle.  However, I decided to sit down on a bench in front of it because of the amount of traffic walking through the area to get to the Michelangelo Exhibit, and the view of Eurydice from the bench was not as good as that from either side.



This is a very small sculpture named Despair, one of many that I didn't remember, although it is from The Gates of Hell.  I loved the position of the figure and just had to draw it in case it disappeared.
