Copying is how we learn; it is the oldest, grandest tradition for the student, and essential to an artist's development. Each of these sketchbooks presents 20 masterworks, followed by blank pages with prompts and advice from artists, critics, and art historians, as well as instructional texts and grid pages for further exercises in reproducing works of art. Measuring about 7½ x 10 inches, the sketchbooks feature elastic closure bands and are designed to lie flat when open.
Featuring 20 masterpieces by artists like Michelangelo, Modigliani, and Matisse more, this sketchbook combines careful study with independent expression. Along with a brief history of life drawing, it provides students and artists with a fresh understanding of the tools, materials, and techniques necessary to master this most intimate subject.
