“Drawing from the Collections: Rendering Clothing and Drapery”
On Thursday, March 4 at 8 p.m., Princeton University Art Museum, in partnership with the Arts Council of Princeton, presents “Drawing from the Collections: Rendering Clothing and Drapery.”
This free online art making experience is inspired by a Greek statuette of Nike from the Hellenistic period. In this sculpture, the goddess of victory wears a clinging chiton with a long overfold that reveals the lines of her figure. A belt cinches the garment creating diaphanous pleating and the illusion of wind-swept movement. more
