French artist Pierre-Paul Prud'hon (1758-1823) is best known as a painter of mythological and allegorical scenes, but also for his chalk studies of nude figures. This volume discusses Prud'hon's drawings (including his unconventional use of live models throughout his career) in great detail, and features 57 duotone reproductions. This is the first monograph on Prud'hon to be published in English.
