Praised by critics and teachers alike for more than 40 years, Burne Hogarth’s Dynamic Anatomy is recognized worldwide as the classic, indispensable text on artistic anatomy.
Now revised, expanded, and completely redesigned with 75 never-before-published drawings from the Hogarth archives and 24 pages of new material, this award-winning reference explores the expressive structure of the human form from the artist’s point of view.
The 400 remarkable illustrations explain the anatomical details of male and female figures in motion and at rest, always stressing the human form in space.
Meticulous diagrams and fascinating action studies examine the rhythmic relationship of muscles and their effect upon surface forms.
The captivating text is further enhanced by the magnificent figure drawings of such masters as Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Rodin, Picasso, and other great artists.
