Did you know?

Eugène Carrière's close friend, the sculptor Auguste Rodin, once said of the artist that he "sculpts in shadow."

Description

Eugène Carrière was known for the evocative, hazy brushwork he used throughout various media. Executed in his signature style, this drawing likely depicts the artist's family studying a book together. Carrière favored such intimate domestic scenes, using ethereal ochre marks to allow his subjects to blend into their surroundings.
