The Figurative Artist’s Handbook
Covering all the basics as well as many advanced techniques to figure drawing and painting, this book is aimed at both students and experienced artists.
A treasure trove of the finest figurative art of the past and the present, this is the first comprehensive guide to figure drawing and painting to appear in decades. The book was illustrated by Robert Zeller’s drawings and paintings as well as with works by nearly 100 historical and contemporary figurative art masters, including Michelangelo, Gustav Klimt and Lucian Freud. Aimed at both students and experienced artists, “The Figurative Artist’s Handbook” is a practical, how-to guide, in which three figure-drawing methods are combined to achieve a cohesive and complete understanding of the human figure.
