As both a painter and sculptor, Leighton used drawings to work from for his sculptures and roughly sculpted pieces as models for his paintings and drawings.  I'll use some of those in a future series on his statues.  And no, I don't know how this piece fits into all that.  I just like it.

  1. wonderful, a simple academic pose...mature, bearded, full could be natural, the model's arms seem to move and there is a hit of the left foot toes being drawn in to grip the floor to steady the pose..always a sign of a master..
