150 Masterpieces of Drawing

150 Masterpieces of Drawing25. 150 Masterpieces of Drawing by Anthony Toney

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The title is misleading. Most of the drawings are rough sketches or studies for other works. Maybe 1/3 look like completed works. Those that do are cool, but overall I was disappointed by Toney's selections.

Just because something is drawn by an esteemed artist, e.g., Rembrandt, does not make all their first drafts masterpieces. The book just wasn't what I expected from its title.
