« It is possible to practice academic drawing
with plates by Charles Bargue, lithographed
on a 19th century press, with paper having the original tonal-value
and the format recommended by the
Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris »
« For anyone interested in traditional art instruction, 19th-century culture, or even just superb printmaking, 2021 is now a year of historical and educational significance. The Bargue Encore project has launched with the publication of ten exquisite lithographs that replicate ten of the plates in Charles Bargue’s legendary Drawing Course. »
