Sketchbook 1881

Here are some pages from artist Willard Leroy Metcalf's sketchbook. Enscribed in the front cover is the following, "There are certainly not so many men of large fortune in this world as there are pretty women to deserve them." Funny words for a sketchbook!
He painted and sketched images of Albuquerque, NM (one of my favorites) and the Southwest, along with scenes from Mexico and figure studies of people he met along the way.
