Contained within its nearly 300 pages is everything you ever wanted to know about Sight-Size cast drawing and painting, impressionist seeing, and the ways in which many of the ateliers that stem from R. H. Ives Gammell teach those subjects.

Emma Nessi studied privately with Cesare Tallone, at the Brera Academy, around 1906. Not much is known about her, in English anyway, and I'd be grateful to learn of any images of her paintings, or other information.

Sight-Size is the best way to learn to see because it allows you to directly, and accurately, compare your artwork to nature
through a visual one-to-one relationship.
