Friday Museum Sketches
Today’s Sketch is two admittedly rushed sketches from the Portland Art Museum. (I had my camera with me and that always plays havoc with my ability to draw.) Two examples of neoclassical sculpture, The Dead Pearl Diver by Benjamin Paul Akers and Medusa by Franklin B. Simmons. New England art museums are full of pieces like this and I frequently find myself thinking of them (unfairly) as the rich’s answer to clowns on black velvet.
