Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This outstanding, very affordably-priced guide to anatomy for artists is uniquely organized to teach students only what is most essential, without going into the unnecessary and overly detailed technical treatment that many students find discouraging. The books is divided into four major sections: the trunk; the head and neck; the upper limb; and the lower limb. For each section, full coverage of the skeleton, the muscles, and surface forms is provided. The emphasis throughout is on relating anatomical structure to the actual surface appearance of the body, both at rest and in motion. Numerous illustrations include diagrams of skeleton and muscle structure, as well as superb examples of figure drawing. An invaluable addition to the library of every artist, student or professional. Unabridged republication of the edition published by Pitman Publishing Corporation, New York, Toronto, London, 1951.
