Abstract:

Dynamic Anatomy presents a comprehensive, detailed study of the human figure as artistic anatomy. This time-honored book goes far beyond the factual elements of anatomy, providing generations of new artists with the tools they need to make the human figure come alive on paper. Praised by critics and teachers alike for more than 40 years, [the book] is recognized worldwide as the classic text on artistic anatomy. Now revised, expanded to include 65 never-before-published drawings from the Hogarth archives, and completely redesigned, this award-winning reference explores the expressive structure of the human form specifically from the artist's, rather than the medical anatomist's, point of view. The 350 remarkable illustrations - 150 now in full color - explain the proportions and anatomical details of male and female figures in motion and at rest, always stressing the living form in space. Meticulous diagrams and fascinating action studies examine the rhythmic relationship of muscles and their effect upon surface forms. Still other drawings help artists understand foreshortening and how to establish the figure convincingly in deep space.
