The first volume of French Drawings and Sketchbooks of the Nineteenth Century, the third part in an ongoing series of text-fiche publications presenting the distinguished drawing collection of the Art Institute, contains works by artists born between 1770 and 1830. This period includes Ingres, who is represented by nine drawings, including five exemplary pencil portraits, and Gericault, whose extraordinary album of sixty-four sheets, reproduced here, represents two crucial phases of the artist's career. The text-fiche also contains drawings by Delacroix and Daumier, which range from casual study sheets to complete pictorial compositions, as well as important groups of drawings by Millet and Bresdin, a group of important, but as yet unknown, drawings by the great sculptor Carpeaux, and an impressive sheet by Courbt.
