Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The timeless classic on drawing human figures is back! Following impressive runs by Sterlings previous editions comes a new, redesigned version of George W. Bridgmans landmark work. It combines six well-known books by the celebrated artist and lecturer, who taught figure and anatomy drawing for many years at New York Citys Art Students League. This edition preserves Bridgmans lessons and original sketches, but now features a nostalgic, eye-catching cover that distinguishes it from the competition. In its sleek new format, this comprehensive guide will certainly continue its reign as one of the premier figure-drawing publications of all time.

"" It will...meet a deeply felt need to draw the human figure from a vantage point of understanding and visual acuity." — "Arts & Activities."
