The photo below is one of many that I took one day at the Museum of Modern Art’s Sculpture Garden, in New York City in the late 1980s. At the time most of the statues were covered in plastic sheets. I believe they were draped to protect them from errant dust of the renovation in the works at the time.

This is a photograph of August Rodin’s statue of Balzac.  I like that Balzac’s bronze drapery is echoed by the plastic drapery of the plinth.
