Drawing from life is in revival today, popularly pursued as a fundamental discipline, and the wealth of illustration here in every aspect of configuration of pose analysed graphically, photographically, by skeleton, by muscle, along with examples of master drawings and technique makes compulsive reading for anyone so occupied. For practicing artists this book allows contemplation before and after a study andmore essentialy the ‘science’ and ‘art’ of drawingmeet in reference in a way which it is hard to see able to improve upon.
