Description

This book explains the guidelines for creating an accurate representation of the nude figure. All anatomical explanations are illustrated clearly, and every concept is demonstrated using step-by-step sequences. Does an artist need to learn scientific anatomy? An understanding of anatomy is not enough on its own to create beautiful illustrations, but it is crucial to an artist's work. Anatomy is now one of the few links between art and science: the nude is still the most effective way of affirming faith in the beauty of the human body. Paintings and sculptures through the centuries from Greek and Roman times show how art can find nourishment in the science of anatomy.show more
