Title Classic Human Anatomy
Author Valerie L. Winslow
Publisher Watson-Guptill Publications
The book includes many extraordinary features in which they show an illustrated overview of the history of artistic anatomy, tracing its development to the present day. An introduction to the “language of anatomy” that makes the meaning of anatomical terms transparent, accessible, and memorable is also presented along with entries on all major muscles and muscle groups, depicting each muscle’s form, its interaction with the skeletal system, and its role in creating movement. Insightful instruction on capturing the human figure through quick “gesture” drawings as well as highly detailed rendering and a selection of finished life studies – some of the whole figure, others focusing on discrete regions of the body – that translate anatomical knowledge into wonderfully expressive art are included.
