Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

According to expert instructor Joseph M. Henninger, the hand is not difficult to draw when its construction is well understood. In this guide for intermediate and advanced art students, Henninger devotes the first section to the anatomy of the hand and forearm. He also shares basic but seldom observed facts concerning comparative measurements. A helpful glossary provides Latin terms, English translations, and descriptions of the hand muscles' functions.

Drawings of the hand constitute the major portion of this volume, consisting mostly of adult male and female hands, followed by children's and babies' hands. The final section comprises a portfolio of drawings by Old Masters and contemporary artists, many accompanied by the author's insightful comments.

Dover (2013) republication of the edition published by the Borden Publishing Company, Alhambra, California, 1973.
