As is the case with many of Julien's lithographs this beautifully executed study was designed for art students to copy—albeit, very advanced students.

This print was part of a program of study wherein students began by copying critical features of faces guided by illustrations revealing the essential lines of construction. Once the fundamentals were mastered drawings like this one offered the final challenge to copy before students changed their name to masters of their craft.
