By the time of Richard Parkes Bonington's tragic death from tuberculosis in 1828, the 25-year-old artist, who was born in England and moved to France as a teenager, was already a seminal figure in the development of modernism in 19th-century French painting. This catalogue raisonné of his drawings serves as a companion to Patrick Noon's Richard Parkes Bonington: The Complete Paintings and represents the next stage in his objective to present the artist's complete known oeuvre. Drawing on more than 25 years of research, Noon catalogues, analyzes, and reproduces more than 400 drawings now indisputably attributed to Bonington. This is the first time many of these exquisite works are appearing in print, among them drawings composed during an 1826 trip through Switzerland and northern Italy.

Patrick Noon is Patrick and Aimee Butler Chair of Paintings, Minneapolis Institute of Arts. He was previously Curator of Prints, Drawings and Rare Books at the Yale Center for British Art.

“….. [A] beautifully produced book.”—Apollo

"Finely researched and beautifully illustrated."—Richard Edmonds, Birmingham Post

"At times tantalising, Noon’s book opens a window into the mind and methods of this marvellous artist, so tragically snatched away at the height of his powers."—David Blayney Brown, Art Newspaper

"This beautifully produced volume continues Patrick Noon’s broad and comprehensive studies into the life and works of Richard Parkes Bonington… No doubt there will be additions and revisions to Noon’s books, as well as more exhaustive studies of individual works, but in the foreseeable future anyone who studies this extraordinarily appealing artist will have to consult and then no doubt give thanks to Noon’s invaluable catalogues."—Stephen Duffy, Burlington Magazine
