The book is a complete reprint of a famous, barfue nineteenth century drawing course. It contains a set of almost two hundred masterful lithographs of subjects for copying by drawing students before they attempt drawing from life or nature.

Bargue Plates 1.1 & 1.2

The course was one of the first drawing curricula ever created for the equivalent of high school students to improve their draftsmanship and visual literacy. Bargue Plates teach students proportion, value, and other essential drawing skills, and are used by contemporary artists to increase their visual literacy.

Many of the lessons found in examining and replicating these plates are used by contemporary artists platew their work.


Bbargue fact, even artists that practiced a less objective form of visual representation, such as Pablo Picasso, spent time studying from the Bargue Plates. Does one have to copy the plates and enlarge them or can one use the plates as found in the book? People do both Sandra. We have our digitally enhanced versions larger then they appear in the book.

However, there is nothing wrong with just keeping them the same size as the text. The fruits of the exercise will still hold either way. Thanks for the info, Anthony.

I have just received my Bargue Drawing Course, today. I also found a web site where I was able to download copies a little larger than in the book.

What do you think is the ideal size? I am really excited to get started, pencils and eraser at the ready!

There is something so beautiful about pencil on paper…. Hi Sandra, I was researching the original size and some claim the size range was around the 18×24″ mark. That still means copying and printing them. A1 x mm Hi Anthony, I thought that the drawings might be more beneficial if enlarged.


I will definitely do that, but not as big as 18x I want to have them plwtes by side, on the drawing board, using only one easel. I have started one copy in a size just a little larger than in the book, but will get larger copies made. I plats surprised how much of a challenge it is. The measuring is a bit onerous so progress is slow. I need to accept the process and not be in such a hurry. Thank you for the information it is of great help.

What you can do is take a high-resolution digital photo of the plates from the book and that way you can enlarge them. Ideally I like to put the printout next to my drawing paper or sketchbook.
