This profusely illustrated book by a master of the subject offers a
complete course in transforming the study of anatomy into art, with
emphasis on the skills needed to draw the human body "from the inside."
Each stage of the course progresses logically through the body's main
areas — trunk, limbs, head, and features, with the entire body
eventually viewed as a complete entity. Accompanying a text on
techniques that even novices can master are nearly 200 illustrations in
color and black-and-white. These include works by painters, graphic
artists, sculptors, art teachers, and students. All demonstrate how to
achieve accurate and expressive forms. Invaluable to beginning and
advanced students of life drawing, the text also includes practical
exercises that will help develop visual imagination.
