Overview

It's the largest, most comprehensive, most authoritative guide to life drawing ever published...and it is now in paperback for the first time ever! Over 1,000 fine illustrations of the human anatomy appear in a single volume, accompanied by detailed explanatory text; an entire education in artistic anatomic structure. A legendary teacher at New York's Art Students' League, George B. Bridgman was the originator of the system of drawing known as constructive anatomy. He carefully analyzes, clarifies, and illustrates the complex movements of the human figure. From the eyes to the toes, and including all the body's muscles and bones, you'll find more than 200 illustrations of the hand, 35 pages of drapes and folds, and hundreds of images of arms, shoulders, heads, torsos, legs, knees, and feet. Widely accepted by art schools and universities as the most practical and technically correct depictions of the human anatomy ever made, these studies will save artists many tedious hours of research and widen the horizons of their work. An essential resource for painters, sculptors, and graphic artists, professional and amateur.
