Eye Candy for Today: Jean-Baptiste Le Prince ink and wash drawing
// lines and colors
Imaginary Landscape with Fishermen Pulling in Their Nets, Jean-Baptiste Le Prince
Pen and black ink with gray wash, roughly 16 x 12 inches (40 x 29 cm); in the collection of the Morgan Library and Museum, NY; use the Download or Zoom links on their page.
Though described as an imaginary landscape, both the landscape elements and the confidently rendered figures have a relaxed naturalism. I like the depth the artist has created with lighter values of wash.
