Resource - Famous Artists' Sketchbooks and sketch collections - online!

In this thread you will find resources online where you can view the sketchbooks, or sketches, of famous artists throughout history.

The initial concept for this thread was inspired by WC! member Katherine T, herself an avid sketcher.
Thanks for the idea and for so neatly collating the research, Katherine.

To anyone who finds new resources online, please feel free to add links to sites where any "famous" artists' sketches or sketchbooks can be viewed - make sure to include the artist's name and a brief discription.

To add your link, just post a new reply.

Thank you!

Re: Resource - Famous Artists' Sketchbooks and sketch collections - online!

Note:
On a few of them it's now more apparent that you need to submit a search to get the result - as follows:
  • Singer Sargent - Harvard collection: search for sketchbook and you will get 20 pages. Ignore the first couple which for some reason have a lot of images missing - after that it gets really good!
  • Cezanne - you need to do a search under technique to access
    • the graphite drawings and
    • the pencil and watercolour drawings

Note:
The Rembrandt section from MFA Boston includes some drawings by other artists with "Rembrandt" in their name!

Hi voltman,
I was able to get to the Harvard, Singer Sargent collection , but you have to type in a search word to go further, (i.e., Venice, drawing, Italy ..)

Try Katherine's suggestions here - it works.

And thank you for including the link to the van Gogh drawings (I forgot that one...oops, foutje!) I've added the link to the main list.

Re: Resource - Famous Artists' Sketchbooks and sketch collections - online!

Hey all,

Katherine's link to Harvard's Singer-Sargent works was giving an error message, so I'm just going to post a quick link to their online collections for any wanting to do a little research.



Take care.

ps. For some reason the link only shows when I try to edit the post to find out why the link isn't showing in the thread.... hopefully it sorts it self out. If not, just copy and paste this in the appropriate place (no pun intended) :
http://www.artmuseums.harvard.edu/co...=bassearchform

It is possible that their (Harvard's) servers are down. The original link always worked for me and did when, 4 weeks ago, I answered voltman. These things happen, nothing we can do about it except wait until the problematic servers at Harvard are up again.

And as timely luck would have it, the Sargent link is working again...at least for me it is.
Sargent at Harvard - main page (This is the link, under Sargent, that is in post #1 of this thread).
Try a search on words, such as Venice or Italy, and you'll get some sketches amongst the watercolors.

Exclamation Re: Resource - Famous Artists' Sketchbooks and sketch collections - online!

I just stumbled across this thread... I remember an online copy of Da Vinci's notebooks, reproduced/written in 1883 by Jean Paul Richter.
hmmm...
For what it's worth:
http://www.sacred-texts.com/aor/dv/index.htm

The "Plates" are the sketches. (some are decent resolution, and some are "okay".) The other pages are the translated text of his notes and theories (into english).
Hope this is correct for this forum

Cheers,
Chris

Da Vinci's sketchbooks downloadable - Richters translation - no copyright.

Re: Resource - Famous Artists' Sketchbooks and sketch collections - online!

a great sketch collection is to be found in the Joconde database of French art.
the search engine is a little hard to handle but it is a fine one.

here are drawings by Henri Regnault: http://www.culture.gouv.fr/public/mi...GNAULT%20HENRI
