Looking at Rembrandt drawings...

Last Wednesday, our model was Sarah, who took up very dynamic poses for the 1 and 2 minute exercises. We looked at some exquisite Rembrandt drawings. We discussed is use of pen and ink and the humanity he portrayed in the work. Because of his empathy for the human condition, art historian Kenneth Clark referred to him as ' one of the greatest prophets of civilisation.' See images made during the class below. Sarah took the poses from the Rembrandt drawings as inspiration for her longer poses.
