THE GREAT DRAUGHTSMEN (PALL MALL PRESS)
The Great Draughtsmen book series was originally published in France by Henri Scrépel as the Les Carnet de Dessins series.
"The Great Draughtsmen series aims to answer the needs of the growing numbers who appreciate and enjoy drawings as works of art, by making available for the first time full-colour drawings of the masters in concise, reasonably-priced volumes. Each title explores the personality and genius of one artist, through a presentation of drawings and an authoritative text. The drawings, chosen from collections all over the world, are reproduced with exceptional care."
