Complete Guide to Drawing from Life
For more than thirty years thousands of art students crowded into George Bridgman's classes at the Art Student's League in New York to learn at first hand the method of drawing from life which was his personal contribution to art education and which in his own lifetime had become famous. Many of the best known names in contemporary painting and sculpture and commercial art were enrolled in those classes.
Bridgman's vivid and articulate personality brought lively interest to the study of anatomy. His beautiful drawings of musculature and bone structure have provided a truly new literature on the subject. These were anatomical drawings made not for the medical student or the doctor but specifically for the artist. How the body moves, bends, how its parts coordinate, how the hands clutch, pull, or push, are among the countless bodily movements he illustrated and analyzed. ...
The complete Bridgman is meant to be used as well as read. Nowhere can be found a more complete analysis of the hand, for instance, than these pages. Over two hundred drawings of the hand with its enormous variety of movement and position are shown. And there are explanations, as well, of its muscles at every plane. There are innumerable drawings of both structure and movement integrated with the text and a complete study of folds and draperies as they relate to the human form.
In this book is the heart of Bridgman's system of constructive anatomy, his life drawing and his work on the structure of head and features. The entire work of his long lifetime in art instruction and practice is included here. It was necessary up to the present to acquire a separate book on each phase of Bridgman's art instruction. In the new complete Bridgman is presented for the first time a comprehensive volume that includes all the specialized art instruction in a form that can be readily consulted and is all-inclusive.
