Rawson’s writing style and tone will appeal to the beginning student of drawing- his observations, definitions, and theories will also be edifying to the well-established patron or scholar of art.Numerous reproductions of works from as early as 400BC, serve as case studies and examples of Rawson’s theories on various drawing materials and techniques, including format, the hand as drawing implement, pen and brush, chiaroscuro, calligraphy, studies “after nature,” and the cartoon.
