Providing a concise but comprehensive survey of all matters pertaining to drawing the human figure, this well-illustrated and accurate guide demonstrates the interplay of structure, anatomy, design and expression in sound figure drawing, and shows how the careful integration of these four factors is essential in drawing the figure in a compelling and lucid manner. Focuses on the figurative and abstract considerations of drawing observed or envisioned human forms, and takes a broader view that regard the figure in its context (i.e., draped, nude, partial). Contains figure drawings from old and new masters alike, representing a wide range of styles and themes, and provides a variety of "Suggested Exercises" at the end of each chapter to reinforce issues and concepts under discussion. Fifth Edition include a new chapter ("A Gallery of Visual Resources") containing approximately 45 photographs of male and female figures, plus over 20 additional old and contemporary master drawings.
