Notes: Saint-Aubin marked up the margins of his own printed livrets de Salon with pencil and ink diagrams of wall-hanging configurations and of individual works he encountered. His print and drawing catalogues served as personal memory-aides in a time before images were included in such exhibition ephemera. Scholars since have been able to recreate large portions of exhibitions by referencing Saint-Aubin’s detailed sketches.
