Anatomy for the Artist by Sarah Simblet Hardback Book

Sarah Simblet unveils the extraordinary construction of the human body and celebrates its continuing prominence in Western Art today. Using superb specially commissioned photographs of male and female models together with historical and contempory works of art and her own illustrations. Sarah shows us how to look inside the human frame to map its muscle groups skeletal strength balance poise and grace. Selected drawings superimposed over photographs reveal fascinating relationships between external appearance and internal structure. Six drawing classes guide the reader to see the human body afresh offering techniques and attitudes that imagiatively show how to observe and draw the skeleton, head, ribcage, pelvis, hands and feet. By investigating ten Masterworks the author shows the knowledge and ideas of different artists across tie ranging from Holbeins Christ Entombed to Edward Hoppers Hotel Room. Each masterclass presents a photographed model set in the same pose so that anatomical comparisons can be made. Understanding anatomy is often the key to an artists understanding and interpretation of the body. This imaginative modern reference book will enhance the drawing and painting techniques of artists and every level.
