Funchal museum

Back to Madeira with some sketches from the Frederico de Freitas museum in Funchal. A small ivory carving (with a lamb on the shoulder and one on the knee, St Agnes?), figures on tiles, and a C19th engraving of Madeira printed in negative. I could have happily spent hours sketching the animated blue figures on their many Delft tiles, carefully following the economical and expressive brush-strokes, all fixed in glaze 300 years ago (“The Delft potters made tiles in vast numbers, estimated at eight hundred million over a period of two hundred years”!).
