The Gates of Hell

I  returned to the garden of the Musee Rodin to sketch this immense bronze sculpture again. Last year when  I had my first opportunity to visit I sketched the statue of Eve, and blogged about it here.
This time I gave the figure of Adam my attention.  I have found that drawing a great work of art is the best way to look hard and appreciate. And, as a side benefit, the gardens with the French formal landscaping and many famous sculptures are so peaceful.
