Finally a sketch of Erasmus' Burial site.

I started this sketch back in May and finally finished it today. When we used to live in this part of the world I would go to the Basel Muenster and without fail I would take a few moment and go "visit" Erasmus. Finally, I got around to making a sketch of this favorite spot.

Here is my favorite Erasmus' quote:
"To be a schoolmaster is next to being a king. Do you count it lowly employment to imbue the minds of the young with the things of Christ and the best of literature and return them to their homes honest and virtuous persons? In the opinion of fools, it is a humble task; but in fact, it is the noblest of occupations." - Desiderius Erasmus (1466-1536). 

If you are interested you can see other sketches from Basel by clicking the Basel link in the right column of my blog.
