    Included in this small sketchbook is a drawing of a nineteenth-century Kongo sculpture from the Yombe region of central Africa, in the collection of the National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian. This drawing was made during the artist’s 1993 visit to Washington, D.C., where he made sketches and notes on numerous artworks ranging from ancient Minoan sculpture to works by Titian, Bellini, Van Dyck, Bacon, and de Kooning. All together, this small, 100 page notebook, originally purchased in the shop at the National Gallery (as evidenced by the dated receipt contained within) includes sixty-five sketches and notes.
