5.0 out of 5 stars Worth every penny!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 February 2020
I want to improve my drawing skills and copying Bargue plates is a perfect way to do this. I have the large Charles Bargue course book at home but I wanted something I could extract individual sheets from and make notes on them as I saw fit. This book is perfect. I cut the spine off with a scalpel then punched holes in the sheets and put the whole lot inside a ring binder. I personally don’t think the pictures are poor quality as some other reviewers have said. They could certainly be a bit better, but not at this price, and they’re exactly what I want. They’re clear enough for me to practice my drawing.

The book itself is just under 22cm across and 28cm high. It’s in two main sections. The first section has 70 traditional Bargue plates in the same format as the original drawings – that is a finished picture with the preparatory stages of the drawing included. These are laid out with the preparatory outline sketches on the left hand page and the final drawing on the right side, or with both sets on the same page. Those familiar with Bargue plates will know what I mean. This is excellent and each set of preparatory sketches plus the finished article counts as one plate, so you get your 130 plates plus. The second section has 60 traditional pose plates, which are simplified drawings of the full human figure. Just like the original course, these are all male figures, including a few of a young boy, mostly in loin cloths and a few (tastefully) nude.

Overall I think it’s a great drawing reference for under £8. The Bargue course book will set you back five times that. If you want to improve your drawing skills by copying classical art you could do a lot worse than this!

This book is a great inexpensive way to see if you want to invest in the £40+ full version of this drawing course from Old Master Charles Bargue.

The quality of the book is ok, I suspect the images are of far higher reproduction quality in the more expensive version of the book.

Also it’s a shame for some reason it only covers the beginner and advanced sections of the course and misses out the intermediate ones.
