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 colour 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.
