She has concentrated on French artists of the 18th and 19th centuries, with particular focus on figure studies, portraits, animals, interiors, mythological subjects, unusual landscapes, and sketchbooks. This volume publishes 59 of the most important drawings, each reproduced in duotone and accompanied by a comprehensive essay.
