This first title in Barron's brand-new, instructive, and profusely illustrated series can be used as a self-teaching manual for ambitious amateur artists or as a textbook in art classrooms. After a brief introduction on the history of anatomy in art, it offers a detailed analysis of the human skeleton, muscles, bones, joints, and body proportions of human figures in standing, sitting, reclining, and action poses. The book's exercises are focused to improve and refine students' proficiency in drawing all parts of the human body. Artists' tools and accessories are recommended, and techniques are shown to help students render the human form in both wet and dry media.
