We’re back in London, moving in to our new place and not posting enough on here. We now live on a park so lots of opportunities for figure studies.. Also below, a visit to the British Museum, one of my favourite places. On this occasion I went to see the Italian Renaissance Drawings exhibition, stuffed with gorgeous sketches and half the population of London.
This was the final drawing in the exhibition, Portrait of a young woman in profile to the right by Titian. Artists at that time tended to use men as models for female characters, I guess because nude female models weren’t the done thing. So the women often looked a little (or a lot) masculine. But not in this drawing. You really need to stand in front of it to see – it’s lovely.
