Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This classic book, whose foremost author was one of the great artistic anatomy teachers of the twentieth century, is an invaluable instructor and reference guide for any professional, amateur, or student artist who depicts the human form.

Revealing the drawing principles behind one hundred inspiring masterpieces, the book presents work by Leonardo, Michelangelo, Rubens, Raphael, Titian, Rembrandt, and other greats. These superb portrayers of figures knew that the secret of drawing them was seeing how underlying bone and muscle structures mold the bodys surface forms. Readers are shown how to learn from these great examples as the authors guide them through all the steps they would take in a life class or studio working with live models.

Book News Annotation:

Students of figure drawing will be pleased to have access to this paperbound reprint of the 1977 work, which itself was a sequel to Hale's famous Drawing Lessons from the Great Masters. One hundred masterpieces of figure drawing are analyzed in anatomical terms to convey the knowledge of bones, musculature, and proportion that the Old Masters incorporated into their work.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
