Lunch with de Renert

On Thrusday we had another sunny lunch hour and sketching session.

This time we went to Place Guillaume II (or, as it is more commonly known, de Knuedler) and sat by the statue of de Renert (the fox).

This small statue (you barely see it if you are not paying attention), represents one of the most famous characters in Luxembourg literature.

De Renert is a fable written by Luxembourg author Michel Rodange and published in the XIXth century.

It is a satire on Luxembourg society of that period, a time when the nation was still very young and with an uncertain future in the industrial revolution.

It is a very beloved part of Luxembourg culture.

I went a bit crazy with the colours; none of these are accurate.
