Series Six, Drawing Eleven



As viewed from the Jardin de l’Infante
We look up into the Salle Clarac. (Room 35) Between the pair of tall French doors is a destroyed display case. The glass doors are spilled on the floor. Above the display case, a stone bas-relief sculpture is broken in half. At the bottom of the drawing, in the rubble, we can see chunks of the ceiling and sections of the parquet floor. Above, we can see that the ceiling has been badly scorched by the fire. At the very top of the drawing is the orange wall of the Barbizon Gallery. Above that, the broken skylights dangle in the open air.
