Publisher Comments:

Praised by critics and teachers alike for more than 40 years, Burne Hogarth's Dynamic Anatomy is recognized worldwide as the classic, indispensable text on artistic anatomy. Now revised, expanded, and completely redesigned with 75 never-before-published drawings from the Hogarth archives and 24 pages of new material, this award-winning reference explores the expressive structure of the human form from the artist's point of view.

The 400 remarkable illustrations explain the anatomical details of male and female figures in motion and at rest, always stressing the human form in space. Meticulous diagrams and fascinating action studies examine the rhythmic relationship of muscles and their effect upon surface forms. The captivating text is further enhanced by the magnificent figure drawings of such masters as Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Rodin, Picasso, and other great artists.

Dynamic Anatomy presents a comprehensive, detailed study of the human figure as artistic anatomy. This time-honored book goes far beyond the factual elements of anatomy, providing generations of new artists with the tools they need to make the human figure come alive on paper.

Synopsis:

Hailed by teachers, students, and critics for fifty years, this manual presents both action studies and practical diagrams for portraying the human figure in motion and at rest. Anatomical details appear in pragmatic, generalized shapes that simplify identification and reproduction. More than 300 images complement the easy-to-follow text, which includes a valuable survey of art history and magnificent figure drawings by such masters as Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Rodin, and Picasso.

Burne Hogarth, called "the Michelangelo of the comic strip," is best known for his long-running Tarzan cartoons and for helping found New York's School of Visual Arts. In this study of the human figure, he explains muscular and skeletal structure from the artist's point of view, rather than that of the medical anatomist. Hogarth extends beyond the factual elements of anatomy to emphasize the relationship of mass to movement. His guide will prove an indispensable companion to artists at all skill levels who wish to render the human figure accurately and artistically.
