Gregor von Bochmann produced many drawings, mainly pen drawings but also pen, brush, charcoal and even paper cutouts.
There are also many sketch books that contain many sketches and also some finished drawings. Most of these things remained in family ownership.
A good number of these drawings have already been included in the work catalogue since its inception in 1999.
They have numbers between B0001 and B1300. In this new version of 2018, a large number of additional drawings
have been included with numbers above B5000. All these additional drawings can be consulted by looking at the following groups.
Note, however, that not all these drawings are included in the work catalogue - the very sketchy drawings are excluded, especially those in the sketch books
(they can NOT be found by using the search functions of the catalogue, but only by looking explicitly at one of the groups below).
There are the following groups:
- Drawing Collection A : Numbers B5001 through B5037
- plus several drawings with numbers between B0001 and B1500
- Drawing Collection B : Numbers B5201 through B5258
- Drawing Collection C : This collection consists
of 37 large card boards (35 x 50 cm) on which one or several drawings are glued (numbers B5301 through B5337).
They were probably prepared between 1910 and 1930. The card boards measure 35 x 50 cm, some are a few cm less large - the height
of the photos is 34 cm. The photos of the card boards are not included in the
Photos of the individual drawings are numbered B5351 through B5445 -
they are part of the catalogue and follow the same order as the card board photos.
- Drawing Collection D : Numbers B5501 through B5557
- Drawing Collection E : Numbers B5601 through B5644
- Drawing Collection F : Numbers B5701 through B5752
- Drawing Collection G : This is a 26 x 37 cm
Album with 74 drawings
which belonged to Heinz von Bochmann, a grandchild of the painter. After his death in 1944, it remained with his wife, Hildegard,
who gave it in 2005 to the woman who looked after her in the seniors residence. In 2022, the album was sold by Hargesheimer (Düsseldorf).
The approximate sizes of the drawings can be seen in the model album .

The drawings from the collections are shown in a cropped format which is more pleasing to look at.
However, a full size view of most of these drawings can be obtained by clicking on the link which is shown
at the bottom of the large view of the drawing. For some drawings in the collections, the piece of paper has a
drawing on both sides - to see the other side of the paper, there is another link that can be followed.
