Overview

“For decades, Hale's admirers throughout America have hoped that his lectures on drawing and anatomy would become available in book form. I am delighted that this moment has come at last.

Overview

“For decades, Hale's admirers throughout America have hoped that his lectures on drawing and anatomy would become available in book form. I am delighted that this moment has come at last. For this book is not only a permanent record of Hale's teachings, but the crowing achievement of a man who remains an unforgettable presence in the live of artists throughout America.”—Philippe De Montebello, Director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art

“Robert Beverly Hale is a beloved teacher. He is a tall, spare, somewhat rumpled patrician of seventy-six, with black-rimmed glasses and an El Greco face. He teaches two courses, Artistic Anatomy and Elements of Drawing, at the Art Students League, on West Fifty-seventh Street, and his classes are a continual, almost legendary, celebration not only of the beauty and wonder of the human form but of Hale himself. Many people consider Hale the foremost teacher of artistic anatomy in the country, and perhaps the world. His classes are always oversubscribed, and students return year after year. When Hale enters a lecture hall or a studio, his students burst into applause.”—The New Yorker Profile, June 13, 1977

    An excellent resource. The lessons and examples bring a deep understanding to the methods used to represent the human figure through history. Very well done. Definitely a book to include in a reference library for student or artist.
