Paris - life of a sculptor III -Grande Chaumiere

Had the joy of attending a life drawing session at the historical Grande Chaumiere Academie in Paris.

Incredible history had gone through this school - Modigliani, Cezanne, Delacroix, Manet, Picasso all worked here at various points in their lives.

You can feel this rich tradition worked over the years into the wooden floor, the paint flecked patina of the stools, and the steady fervour of concentrated pencils across paper during the model session.
