Some working class heroism

Couldn’t help myself, a quick second round with sketches of some more masterpieces, 

This time Picasso, Matisse, and not one, not two, but Three Venus de Milo!.
When a painting is lent, a note is put in its place.

And, as promised, the Venus de Milo sisters, all drawn by the same family. (I adore this series)
And to finish off, something about life and death:
A statue of the fish carying the spirits to the death world (from the Oceanic collection of the Quai Branly museum)
And just for the context, This is a big black wooden fish, the skull is put in its belly, and there is a man (whom I didn’t draw) holding the fishe’s mouth firmly shut, while the mouth penetrates it’s back. (hope the picture below makes it clearer…)

A sunrise or a sunset?
