Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This famous work enables artists to learn drawing as those of the past did: by study and emulation of the masters.

Review:

"Studying and emulating past masters is the best way of learning to draw, according to this book's legendary author." American Artist

Synopsis:

This instructive volume has been designed to help artists learn to draw by careful emulation of master works. The author methodically analyzes 100 famous drawings by such artists as Michelangelo, Raphael, Rembrandt and Watteau, and explains the principles of art exemplified by each sketch.

Synopsis:

A book whose sales have not diminished but rather increased dramatically since its publication 45 years ago, this bestselling classic is the ultimate manual of drawing taught by the late Robert Beverly Hale, whos famed lectures and classes at New York Citys Art Student League captivated artists and art educators from around the world.

Faithfully producing and methodically analyzing 100 master drawings—including works of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Rodin, Goya, and Rembrandt among others—Hale shows how these artists tackled basic problems such as line, light and planes, mass, position and thrust, and anatomy. With detailed analytical captions and diagrams, every lesson is clearly delineated and illustrated. Throughout, also, is commentary that sheds light on the creative process of drawing and offers deep insight into the unsurpassed achievements of the masters.

About the Author

Robert Beverly Hale (1901-1985) was considered to be America's preeminent teacher of artistic anatomy. He was Curator of American Paintings and Sculpture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and he taught at the Art Students League of New York for forty years. He served as Adjunct Professor of Drawing and Lecturer on Anatomy at Columbia University, and was Lecturer at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and at The Cooper Union in New York. His famous lectures, illustrated with life-size drawings he created on the spot, were attended by students, professional artists, and art educators from around the world.
