The execution of sketches and studies was a crucial part of Edmonds’s creative process. Many of his drawings exist as independent works--apparently never taken further--but many others represent an initial step in his conception for paintings. This sketchbook, which he began about 1838, includes both types of drawings of a variety of subjects.
