As I mentioned in my last post, this summer I visited the fascinating city of Oxford, England. It is full of ancient colleges, robed students, interesting architecture and one of the greatest university museums in England. I was able to spend almost an entire day in the Ashmolean Museum and was impressed with its wonderful collections. The focus is art and archeology. I even made time to do a little sketching. Off the main entrance is a wonderful sculpture court and I happily spent about 30 minutes sketching Clio, the muse of history. She was quite beautiful – even without her head! Here is the statue:

And here is the sketch:
