Quay Branly

pen and ink 26cm x 21cm

Just spent a few days in Paris, and these are some quick drawings I made while wondering around the Quay Branly, the 'new' musueum designed by Jean Nouvelle dedicated to art from Africa, Asia and the South Pacific.  I am always drawn to carved masks. The inventiveness with form and texture within the confines of the human face is amazing.


  1. Scarey,wouldn't,t want to meet any of those on a dark night ,although the one on the right does look the least scarey.

  2. Did you draw views of Paris also? Maybe some shops (yes, I'm still going on with the blue-shop theme!)
