This is the same artist that made La Riviere.

When I started to draw them, I was struck by the difference between the Impressionists and the classical Greek style of the figures in Hollywood Cemetery.
These figures are standing flat footed. They’re kind of primitive looking. At first I thought stiff, but later thought graceful.. This artist was a master at making the figure. The Impressionists liked primitive art and showed it in their work.
I drew them each a few times, then arranged them like the 3 Graces. I made up a reason for their hands to be posed like this. They’re having an apocalypse party. You can see my finished pastel on my web site.
