Book Description

A beautiful sketch book by a French artist whose signature on some pages looks like J Will. This contains sketches of landscapes (of Northern France), several around St. Malo. Some are of ships or parts of ships, and there are ink portraits (close ups of faces). All skilfully executed in pencil, ink or charcoal. There are also two additional loose sketches: one charcoal on paper, the other ink on very thin (balsa?) wood. In total there are 13 pages of landscapes, 13 of portraits, 12 of ships and boats and 4 other sketches. There are also a few others not significant. All drawn between 1884 and 1900 - these are created by a skilled hand.
