A valuable addition to any artist's library, this rich resource offers a practical, comprehensive, and historically and visually inclusive introduction to drawing dimensions. It provides an extensive background of ideas, materials, exercises, exemplars and questions, and includes many innovative and provocative ways of looking at the subject to stimulate individual progress. Containing a virtual treasury of illustrations, it presents a global selection of varied conceptual and perceptional works in many materials and styles - from familiar masterworks to current exemplars, and from student works, featuring those of Josef Albers in the '50's to contemporary students at Cooper Union. Formats material into eight sections composed of discrete "restructurable" units which may be combined (or omitted) to suit individual needs. Presents examples from many historical periods, and contains drawings that emphasize a diverse population of both Eastern and Western artists. Its extensive illustration program features Renaissance, Impressionist, Post Impressionist, Cubists, Pop, Optical and other artists, plus a wealth of striking drawings of lesser known and contemporary artists. Breaks new ground with its focus on perceptual basics, and offers a detailed summary of anatomy, with a full 3-unit treatment of skeletal and muscular structure. Also includes a complete overview of traditional tools and materials, as well as suggestions for innovative techniques and alternative mark-making equipment.
