Redon and Rodin

I was at the Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford and walked into a class that were copying drawings by Odilon Redon inspired by Gustav Flaubert's "The Temptation of St. Anthony".  So I decided to pull up a stool and do a sketch of one of the drawings too.  There were captions associated with each drawing from the book.  This drawing from 1896 had the caption "Death:  It is I who make you serious; let us embrace each other."
Afterwards I went to the Rodin sculpture garden outside and sketched one of the figures in charcoal.
