Drawing, "Sketches for an altar"

type: Drawing

See all objects.

Upon a classical pediment stands a temple-like domed structure. Below a cupola supported by columns and crowned with a trident, is a statue of a deity. Surrounding this sketch are studies for the separate elements of the altar: the cupola, the supporting columns, and the candelabra-shaped pinnacle.
