Classic Human Anatomy

Classic Human Anatomy

"The study of anatomy has long been essential training for painters and sculptures who want to accurately portray the human form. With hundreds of drawings and meticulously researched text, this book includes: an overview of the history of artistic anatomy; an introduction to the "language of anatomy" that makes the meaning of anatomical terms transparent, accessible, and memorable; entries on all major muscles and muscle groups, depicting each muscle's form, its interactions with the skeletal system, and its role in creating movement; instruction on capturing the human figure through quick "gesture" drawings as well as highly detailed renderings; a selection of finished life studies - some of the whole figure, others focusing on discrete regions of the body - that translate anatomical knowledge into expressive art; and quick-reference study aids, including a guide to anatomical terminology and a glossary."--BOOK JACKET.
