A Sketchbook from 1915-1918 
by the Czech Artist T.F. Šimon (1877-1942)



The sketchbook is signed by T.F. Šimon

We show you the sheets of a sketchbook by T.F. Šimon with 48 sheets,
with a grey cardboard cover. The artist used it in 1915 and 1918.
The sheets measure ± 21 x 21 cm.  
Only the sheets that have works of art are published on this page. 
Sometimes we show you only the drawing, sometimes the whole sheet. 
Some drawings are of particular interest for they were intended for known works of art. 
This sketchbook shows that T.F. Šimon was an excellent drawer. 
The portraits of his children are really charming.
Only great artists like Tavik Frantisek Šimon have the gift for picturing children like they are.
