Overview

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 body’s 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.

It interesting but not to relative. Most of the points discussed in each section seemed pointless. I had a hard time staying interested in reading more than a few sentences in any section.

Overall it's a great book for anyone interested in improving their figure drawing. The masterpiece drawings in it are very useful for practicing standing & seated poses (etc), plus foreshortening. The accompanying text, although a bit heavy at times, also has good tips for things to look out for when drawing figures.
