The Essence of Line is a collection of drawings by 19th century French artists. The drawings are part of the collection of a couple of museums and are available for viewing online. There is a My Gallery feature allowing you to collect your favorites to enjoy at leisure.
These drawings are in a variety of medium including watercolors. There is a very nicely designed search function which allows you to search by artist, medium, style etc.
Other than the two mentioned above this exhibition has works of over 900 artists including Delacroix, Cezanne, Manet and Daumier.
3 complete sketchbooks have been scanned and are also available. Take a look.
