Those who are not conversant in works of art are often surprised at the high value set by connoisseurs on drawings which appear careless, and in every respect unfinished; but they are truly valuable... they give the idea of a whole.

    Wow! Impressive and a surprise. Have never seen any of his paintings other than landscapes.

    Google Art Project is great.

    Thanks, Charley

    Incredible. So real. At first I was confused and thought, “Is this a photograph?!” Love the light and shadow, depth and richness, and the stillness.
