A thorough acquaintance with human anatomy is a valuable asset for artists wishing to master figure drawing. This single-volume treatment combines two separate treatises on drawing muscles and bones to create an invaluable reference work.. Each page features multiple illustrations, accompanied by extensive commentary. The text describes the placement and function of bones and muscles and offers lucid explanations of their artistic renderings. Artist and teacher Walter T. Foster self-published many world-renowned art instruction books. Students of figure drawing and anatomy will appreciate his well-illustrated discourses on the realistic portrayal of the human body and his head-to-toe depictions of individual bones and muscles and their collective action.
