by Tonkovich, Jennifer et al.
New York: The Morgan Library & Museum, 2011. Hardcover. VG+. Beige cloth, pastel yellow & color illus. dust jacket, 160 pp., many color illus. "The collection contains more than 130 oil sketches, ranging from works by eighteenth-century Neoclassical pioneers of the genre to studies by artists active during the late nineteenth century, at the dawn of Impressionism. Sketches by such celebrated painters as John Constable, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, and Thedore Rousseau are complemented by vibrant studies by lesser-known French, German, British, Belgian, Scandinavian, and Italian painters. This publication contains new research addressing compelling questions surrounding the creation and function of these explorations in oil, first presented at a symposium at the Morgan in early 2009, and a fully illustrated catalogue raisonne of the Thaw Collection of oil sketches."
