An art historian noted for her authoritative reference works, Merrifield clearly demonstrates the principles of light and shade by revealing the effects of common daylight, sunshine, and candle or artificial light on geometrical solids. Her simple explanations are accompanied by illustrations of cubes, prisms, pyramids, cylinders, spheres, ovals, and cones.
As useful and practical today as it was when first published well over a century ago, Light and Shade provides beginning and advanced art students with valuable insights into effective drawing and sketching.
This is one of the Dover reprints of old art instruction manuals, this one first published in 1854. Serious instruction, it is a little book meant for a determined student. It is truly everything about shading for realistic work and is an excellent value for what it is.
