Product Description :

Robert Beverly Hale is recognized as America’s greatest teacher of figure drawing and artistic anatomy. His legendary classes at the Art Students League in New York, where he taught for forty years, inspired generations of artists. Now Watson Guptill is proud to present his towering masterpiece, Master Class in Figure Drawing, in its 25th Anniversary Edition. Combining Hale’s words with the Old Master drawings on which his teaching method is based, the book captures the excitement of the great teacher’s classrooms. Each page radiates Hale’s magnetism, clarity, and wit; each chapter re-creates the drama of the lecture as Hale demonstrates that mastery of the figure and mastery of anatomy are inseparable. Drawings by Leonardo da Vinci, Michaelangelo, Rubens, Raphael, and scores of other artists illuminate each point. Learn from the great masters—both master teachers and master artists—with Master Class in Figure Drawing.
