Outline-gesture drawings of landscapes and water, objects in nature, especially water reflections, are studies for Claude Monet’s paintings. He sketches anywhere in the book therefore, some appear upside down and overlap onto previous sketches, and are done years apart from each other. He studies composition and perspective, e.g. at train stations, farm fields, churches and the town centers of country towns he visits. Longer independent sketches, are done too, like those of his family. 1865-1908.
Pencil and black crayon.
