This sculpture imprinted itself on me as a child via a black & white photo in an old book. I sketched and painted and drew it numerous times. The oil-painting above was done around ten years before I saw it for myself in the Louvre. I wanted to catch the dawn-like, expansive, ethereal atmosphere it gave me and using a palette knife and impasto paint. I didn't convey the vigour - there are some more paintings or drawings in there.
