"Delacroix drew incessantly throughout his life. The importance the artist attached to this aspect of his work is born out by the thousands of sheets that were dispersed at the time of the sale following his death. The Louvre collection, featuring over three thousand drawings owing particularly to the generosity of a great collector, Etienne Moreau-Nelaton, illustrates by itself the complexity of a versatile genius whose style evolved over the years toward an ever more intense lyricism and a clear synthesis of forms refashioned by his imagination. Whether he would call upon the inexhaustible "dictionary" nature offered him, draw from memory or sheer invention or again, as was often the case, respond to a literary text, Delacroix was a paradoxical draughtsman, heedful of tradition but constantly overstepping it. He made use of almost every graphic technique alternately or combined: charcoal, red chalk, pastel, graphite pencil, pen, watercolour or wash, carrying them to the height of achievement or even to their breaking point."--BOOK JACKET

Présente les dessins de Jacques-Louis David (1748-1825) de la collection du Louvre. Homme des Lumières, mais aussi nourri des exemples moraux de la littérature antique, David a su infléchir le cours de l'école picturale de son temps et symbolise mieux que tout autre ce que fut cette forme de retour à l'ordre que représente le néo-classicisme français
Gérard, Girodet, Gros : David's studio by Arlette Sérullaz ( Book )
8 editions published in 2005 in English and French and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Jacques-Louis David based teaching in his studio on the study of antiquity and on imitation of the Classics. As a result, it soon became synonymous with cold, static academism. Today, this opinion still prevails: David's pupils, supposedly locked into rigid indoctrination, are seldom credited with the slightest spirit of innovation. Yet the drawings of Drouais, Hennequin, Wicar and Navez, rightly considered David's most orthodox disciples, show a clear ability to create new forms with their own personal vision of antiquity. Meanwhile, Gérard, Girodet and Gros, while continuing to demonstrate their mastery of established classical drawing styles, began taking their art in directions that led to the overturning of David's approaches and prefigured the major innovative trends of the twentieth century."--Amazon

Corot by Arlette Sérullaz ( Book )
13 editions published in 2007 in French and English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Louvre retains the largest fund drawings and albums by Corot, largely from the collection bequeathed to the Louvre in 1927 by Etienne Moreau-Nelaton. Pupil of Bertin Michallon then, it was in Italy that Corot was convinced that the drawing is the basis of art. Until his death, he never stopped drawing, beginning with a special predilection for graphite pencil, carefully trimmed, and the pen just as thin and slender. Driven by a strong desire and innate to nature as it is, the artist quickly realized the advantage he might derive from these two mediums, and multiplied the studies of landscape pattern. Simultaneously, Corot became interested in portraits, careful to identify the individual character of its models whose shapes are identified small fine lines and precise. From the 1850s, Corot preferred charcoal and uses colored paper, often of large size. This technique which he has full control it provides, using the stump and heightened with white chalk, the effects of chiaroscuro gives his compositions a dreamlike atmosphere. Having previously worked mostly on nature. Corot now draws more memory and engages in countless variations on a theme, that of the motionless man in a mysterious nature. Contrasting with the invoice incisive studies performed in the first part of his life, the late drawings, with deep velvety blacks give us the key to this imaginary world as the artist was pleased to recreate memories from his travel through Italy and France. Covered notations and quick sketches, scrapbooks can follow this perpetual traveling in his every move. They contain valuable insights of the artist himself and his work. Subtle modulations of a single registry, black and white drawings give us a great lesson of life in harmony with nature
