Charles Bargue Drawing Course (Cours De Dessin) Review

But then, neither is any art coursf. A couple of other points from the original review bear addressing here too: This volume will be of great interest to professional artists, art students, art historians, and collectors. Part 3 can be challenging because you have to get the gestural drawing right and then fill in the blanks. Bargue also had the knack of simplifying his forms in order to make them clearer and easier to copy for drawnig aspiring student. In simple terms, academic art institutions and ateliers at that time were mainly concerned with reproducing nature.

Some plates needed some tweaking because they were too dark or not coirse enough. I bought the book. I was really happy with the black and white.

The Review The Bargue Drawing course is not something that can appreciated with a cursory look. Just run it off and be blessed. Secondly, Graydon has told me since writing this that they did want to have at least some of the plates drawinb loose-leaf in the original size, but it was a no go with the publisher.

I do think it would have been nice for drawingg authors or publisher to at least offer a full size version of the lithos in pdf form.

Of course there are exceptions. Graydon Parrish, one of the editors of the book, sent me a very nice email having read this review, and considering how critical I was, he was very polite.
