The Draper Method
Herbert Draper is a favorite artist of many. His figure studies are appreciated nearly as much as his full-blown paintings. Here are a few for those of you who are fans of the Draper method.

def one of the best of his era and imo belongs in the same class as Waterhouse, Leighton, Alma-Tadema etc etc. nice stuff Thomas, thanks!
I am certainly one of those Draper method fans. Thanks so much for posting these, Thom!
Thanks guys, I just had a feeling that someone might like these.
I've seen this guy's work before, but I guess I just lumped him in with Waterhouse. Well now that I have a name to go with it, I've been stocking up via Google images like theres no tomorrow. It's like you've opened the flood gates for me.
You can't go wrong with good figure drawing - thanks Thom.
His faces are incredible!
Thank you. He is one of my favs!
It's surprising how few Drapers you can find in museums. There should be something of his in every major museum. I don't know why he never achieved an Alma Tadema level of recognition. Anyway, great post.
Tom, not just the museums. Why in the world that more books aren't available for him and a hundred and one other fabulous artists is beyond me.
By the way, I'm a big fan of your work!
That was a bit of an understatement. I could easily go on about such things. Thanks for the kind words about my art.
We have a Draper in the Art Gallery Of South Australia - it features frolicking sea nymphs
