Some days, I feel as if I needed a double of myself to get everything done in time. This week-end is the last of my semester and I will need all the energy and the motivation I have left to end things on the right note. If only Ingres could draw me one more arm...
This is a study Ingres produced for his Turkish Bath (see below, the lady at the far right). I saw this beautiful sketch last summer and even though it is not a complete work, it is one of my favourite creations by Ingres.
