DRAW: Socrates, May He Rest in Peace

For my Painting I class we were tasked with analyzing a classic piece of art work. We broke a “masterwork” down to its key components and drew the organizational lines to better get a better idea of the perspective and composition utilized in the drawing. After breaking it down, we will then reorganize the key parts, and make a painting of our very own based around this reconfiguration. Sounds fun!

I chose The Death of Socrates by Jacques-Louis David.

    My mom, being a student of art herself, is excited to see what the next stage of the assignment is. We both really enjoyed looking at this drawing. (I too am excited to see what is coming next.) Not being a student of art, I really found your drawing to be informative and very interesting!
