I’m looking to see if anyone has any recommendations on books, maybe ones about the great masters/ art history books. Drawing or painting related! Movies/ documentaries are fine too!

Wish I still had it, but I only checked it out from the library. Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to use the forums. Sign Up for a free account or Sign In.
