Series 4: Sketchbooks and Sketches, circa 1910s-1930s
(Boxes 2-3; 8 folders)

Four sketchbooks by Faulkner contain pencil and ink drawings of landscapes, city scenes, architecture, figures, faces, animals, trees, and water. Also included are drawn copies of artwork by others including murals, sculptures, mosaics, Asian art, Egyptian art, Greek art, and objects such as furniture and clothing. The first sketchbook contains notes on the relationship between the body, color, and the zodiac; notes on astrology; and detailed notes about where sketches were copied. Also found in this series are a small pencil sketch of a foot and a large pastel sketch of a landscape.
Artwork by others includes two sketches by Margaret Platt including one of Faulkner's studio from 1922, and three drawings which are similar stylistically but whose creator is unknown.
This series has been scanned in its entirety.
