Sketchbook ca. 1894-1896

The drawings in this sketchbook deal with sculptures such as The Prodigal Son, the Small Figure Kneeling, a few religiously inspired sketches of a physically fallen Christ and a Christ on the Cross as well as a kneeling John the Baptist.

One sketch recalls the independent drawing, Grieving Mother from 1890. Further, this sketchbook also contains more realistic drawings with attention to the musculature of the body. Worth noting are the sketches from groups of male figures that seem to be carrying out some ritualistic dance with arms stretched out upwards.
