Re: Books with high quality master painting reproductions for copying/study
I have one book of a series published in 1976, by Phaidon/Oxford, E.P.Dutton Press ISBN 0714817481 which has a biographical portion in regular paper, and then an "art" section in glossy full page (some detail, but most full painting). This book originally was 6-7 dollars, and you can find them on line for a few bucks.
The pages are 9X12 inches (23X30 cm)
At the time of the printing, the series included artists like Botticelli, El Greco, Gauguin, Manet, Turner and about 30 others.
The pictures are gorgeous, full page, and the prices of the books are cheap.
By the way, also, many cities have "Library Societies" which can be joined for 5-10 dollars. Often every year, they have library book sales, and you can find many large beautiful pre-used art books for pennies on the dollar. This is well worth it if you desire to build up a good art book collection.
