The French Academies employed a method of teaching basic drawing skills to their beginning students in which they copied increasingly difficult lithographs from the Charles Bargue Drawing Course before moving on to drawing plaster casts. This method ensured a logical progression in difficulty from basic shape-making, measuring, and shading techniques from a flat reference to a three-dimensional reference.
