Antique French Academy Drawing Discus Thrower circa 1880

The "Discus Thrower" sculpture depicts an athlete at rest and is a copy of the lost Greek bronze original. This antique French drawing circa 1880 was created by a student at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts (see stamp upper right). The statue was chosen for its adherence to the canon of ideal Greek beauty as a suitable subject for aspiring artists. Rendered beautifully using graphite and charcoal on paper this handsome drawing remains a timeless evocation of the eternal. Please enlarge the photographs to see the details in closeup. Now with a custom frame.
