In this COMPLETE BRIDGMAN it is clear that ALL of the constructive anatomy of the human figure is gathered into one volume, with anatomical drawings made not for the medical student or the doctor but specifically for the artist. How the body moves, bends, how its parts coordinate, how the hands clutch, pull, or push, are among the countless bodily movements illustrated and analyzed by Bridgman. In this book one learns to foreshorten the forms and to articulate the limbs in a direct comprehensible manner because the reasons for change of form and shape are diagrammatically and dramatically explained. THE COMPLETE BRIDGMAN is meant to be used as well as read. Nowhere can be found a more complete analysis of the hand, for instance, than in these pages. There are innumberable drawings both of structure and movement integrated with the text plus a complete study of folds and draperies as they relate to the human form. This COMPLETE BRIDMAN presents for the first time a comprehensi ve volume that includes all the specialized art instruction in a form that can be readily consulted and is all-inclusive. " Separate sections on: The human head; The torso; The scapula; The arm; The armpit; The hand; The pelvis; The lower limbs; The foot; Draping. A combined Index and Glossary is at the back of the book. Bookseller Inventory # 42217
