Dancer and Death

I went to the Glenbow Museum to see the Canadian Nude and Kent Monkman show.  I brought my new sketchbook and saw this beautiful 1938 print by Jean Dallaire. Since you can only sketch with pencil in the museum, I used my trusty mechanical HB to sketch this out.

I was drawn to the dancing skeleton at first then to their expressive body positions.
