1 Linear foot
Boxes 7-8, 11

Tworkov's sketchbooks (28 volumes) contain sketches and some finished drawings. Most are in pencil, but scattered throughout are a few pencil sketches embellished with colored marker or pastel, and a small number in ink. Two finished abstract compositions in pastel are found in volume 21. All sketches and drawings in volumes 23-24 and some in volume 28 are on small sheets of paper pasted onto the pages.
Notes and poems are included in volume 22, and in volumes 24-25 are calculations that may relate to experiments with diagonal compositions. Volume 26 contains a self-portrait and volume 17 includes portraits of Wally. Undated journal entries are found in volume 28.
This series has been scanned in its entirety.
