It proved exceptionally difficult to locate any drawings by Giotto di Bondone for this extensive website, far harder than any of the other mediums in which he was involved
All the available evidence teaches us of Giotto's skills as a draughtsman yet unfortunately there are not really any artworks left due to the fragile nature of his work in this medium. For a simple sketch to last from the time of Giotto all the way to today has just proven too tough a challenge for all of the study drawings that no doubt he would have completed during his own lifetime. The photograph included here is from a large Christies sale entitled Victorian, Pre-Raphaelite and British Impressionist Art. It is a portrait drawing of Giotto by Simeon Solomon in the late 19th century as a sign of respect and love for an artist who achieved so much many centuries earlier.
