This was quite a disappointment: no drawings, no engravings, and no watercolours are included in the section devoted to his works. There is mention of his writings, but no relating of them to the reader (I mean his instructional works which were unpublished at the time of his death). Only his paintings are considered in the Works section. Hopefully, the items in the bibliography are more useful.
