after Charles Maurin
Landscape c. 1893
The Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum,
Rutgers University New Jersey
After a bit of a hiatus, I'm back with the posts here. I began to develop some work from these drawings and decided to wait to show the original ideas until I was ready to show the developed work.
There's not much information to be found on Charles Maurin but he developed, along with his friend Toulouse-Lautrec, an early version of the airbrush that he used to make his vaporiser watercolors.
I've never seen one of these myself, and though I made this drawing from a black and white, two by three inch plate of one, it was really too small to tell much aside from the general forms.

after Léon Bonnat
View of the Roman Compagna, 1858
A continuation from last week of copies out of the Degas Landscapes book.
This Bonnat (originally in ink and black crayon) and the next few are from very, very tiny plates of examples from Degas contemporaries.
