Dust jacket notes: "The best figure drawings, by old and contemporary masters alike, reveal the harmonious interaction and the mutual reinforcing behavior of structure, anatomy, design, and expression. Figure Drawing examines each of these factors separately and then looks at their interrelation within a drawing. Rather than dictating formulas, it points out the universal facts and forces exemplified in dozens of drawings of draped and nude figures, to help the reader understand the total scope and creative potential of the four basic elements. A concise exploration of structural issues establishes structure not only as a volume-builder but as a rich source of visual and expressive invention. The chapters on design and expression explore thoroughly the abstract dynamics of figure drawing; these alert the artist to important aspects of perception which emerge from the subject matter, the artist, and the evolving drawing itself...."
