He was considered a master unsurpassed. This sketch is very bold in the coat, and very timid and sensitive in the face.

This style of drawing at one time was considered traditional. Paul Calle mentions in his writings that he started out in the more "traditional" method of drawing, with the shade lines all parallel from the upper right with less regard to the contour of the form. Then he gradually changed to the contoured lines which follow the contours of the form, changing in direction.

His reference to more "traditional drawing" perked my attention. It seems that the traditional methods that I learned have vanished. They have slipped off into oblivion it seems, lost to this generation.
