Kurd Albrecht (1884 - 1964): Drawings from Plaster Casts, Circa 1900

If you look closely you can see where the artist changed certain parts of each drawing based upon more accurate sight-size measurements he had taken during the initial layin of the outline drawing. Plaster casts were used in the initial drawing training of students and the teaching of sight-size drawing techniques.


Here is a sampling of his works:
