From the flyleaf:
The study of anatomy has long been essential training for painters and sculptors who want to accurately portray the human form. And this has never been truer than today, when artists working across an enormous variety of media - from traditional fine arts to animation and video games - are using the human figure to communicate their message. With this book, Valerie L. Winslow has given us an artist's anatomy for our time - one that is as familiar with modern anatomical science as it is steeped in the classical canons of figurative proportion, rhythm, and grace.
With its hundreds of beautifully wrought drawings and meticulously researched text, Classic Human Anatomy is certain to become a new classic of art instruction. The book's many extraordinary features include:
- 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
- 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 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 wonderfully expressive art
- Valuable quick-reference study aids, including a guide to anatomical terminology and an extensive glossary
