A signed and previously unknown sketch of Olrik

In this site’s launch article, all those readers who had illustrations, information or anything they wanted to share about René Sterne and his work were invited to reach out to us with such materials for them to be displayed on this site.

A few days ago we were contacted by Dominique Leonard, who provided us with a magnificent and previously unknown sketch of Olrik, drawn and signed by Sterne in 2005 and a key inspiration for a panel of The Curse of the Thiry Denarii. Below are both the sketch and the actual panel it later inspired, both kindly sent to us by Leonard, whom we deeply thank for that and reading us.

If you also have illustrations or anything on such a great artist, please feel free to email us by using the contact form at the top right of the screen!
