Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For thousands of artists lacking access to figure classes with live models, this portfolio of superbly photographed models provides a life-drawing studio right at home. An extensive compilation of traditional life drawing poses includes female and male figures in standing, seated, reclining, and action poses, each shown gracefully in circular movement, taking in all views: front, three-quarter-front, side, three-quarter back, and back. Each photograph is beautifully composed and lit, providing artists with all the nuances of muscle structure, line, and gesture to inspire fully developed figure drawings and paintings.

Synopsis:

A world-class photographer provides an extensive collection of traditional life drawing poses, including male and female figures in standing, seated, reclining, and action poses, each shown gracefully in circular movement, taking in all views. 450 illustrations.
