9780994731302: New Artistic Anatomy: Female Morphology

A monumental book on the female figure by the father of modern artistic anatomy, Dr. Paul Richer. Available for the first time in English translation.

This book is the first of its kind to offer a comprehensive description of the female form. Here, Richer accurately analyzes proportions of men and women. He discusses ways in which male and female bodies are similar, and then highlights ways in which they are different. He talks about the role of the skeleton, the fat deposits, and the skin in creating the superficial form of the body. Finally, he discusses the features of the face. This book includes 122 marvelous illustrations drawn by Richer in black & white, a translator's preface, and an index.

In this book, Richer emphasizes the variable qualities that make each individual unique. This text is unlike any other book on human anatomy and will be a valuable resource for artists working in any art medium.

About the Author:

Dr. Paul Richer (1849-1933) was the leading French instructor of artistic anatomy at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris from 1903-1922. He was a practicing physician specializing in neuroscience and a member of the National Academy of Medicine in France. In addition, he was a highly accomplished figurative sculptor. His works are found in the Musee d'Orsay.

Allana M. Benham is a practicing artist and a specialist in artistic anatomy. She teaches at Atelier de Bresoles in Montreal.

Review:

"Dr. Paul Richer could be called the greatest artistic anatomist of all time. His book New Artistic Anatomy: Female Morphology, is happily now available in Allana M. Benham's translation from the original French. This new English edition presents Richer's brilliant and unique analyses of female form, illustrated with his own beautiful drawings. Extensive information on female form and the structures creating it had been seriously lacking from the literature until Richer wrote this book. This definitive reference belongs in the library of every figurative artist."
-Eliot Goldfinger
"Bravo! An extremely overdue and universally 'wished-for' endeavor. Allana M. Benham's new and enlightened translation is a welcome addition to the anatomical lexicon, a true gift for the rest of us!"
-Frank Porcu
