Graphite on 6 X 9″ white drawing paper, Rodin’s Woman in Agony by Carol Lois Haywood.

I did this during a visit to the nearby Cantor Arts Center in Palo Alto, CA. This university-based museum has quite a large collection of Rodin sculptures including the Gates of Hell portal. It’s on the grounds of Stanford University.

One is always permitted to sit and sketch items of interest there–if yielding to frequent passersby doesn’t disturb you. I believe the Woman in Agony is part of the Gates of Hell sculpture group.
