Although drawing was established as an important training practice in Italy, it was the influence of Paris’ École des Beaux-Arts, the most important art school in the Western world, that instilled in artists the benefits of observation and constant drawing as the foundation for art making. This collection of 40 drawings from the Dahesh Museum of Art explores this tradition through the works of Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Rosa Bonheur, Léon-Joseph-Florentin Bonnat, Gustave Doré, Théodule-Augustin Ribot, Léopold Robert, and other artists.
