Los Angeles -- Before photography this was the tool to capture the natural lifelike features many of the 19th Century Masters are credited. That is not to say that they simply "copied" and "traced" their subjects. They needed the technical mastery to block, shade, tone, hue and drape their paintings free hand as well as fully understand the skeletal and muscular structure of the human body.
Yet in an uncompromising environment where your life and not just your livelihood depended on your skill to perfect the human form and its landscape on a two dimensional canvass in oil you needed that extra hand. Before the invention of photography you had the "Camera Obscura" and the "Camera Lucinda" that did the job well for the budding artist as well as the veteran of the oil canvass.
