Drawing The Human Head
Among all the subjects which the art student is called upon to draw, none is more complex than the human head. The head presents subtleties of form, structure, and proportion which are a continuing challenge not only to art students, but to professionals. To many, drawing the head is not merely a perpetual challenge, but a perpetual struggle.
Watching students wrestle with the problems of drawing the head for many years, I have long hoped to see a book which would take some of the guesswork out of their struggles: a book which would systematically assemble the basic facts that every artist needs to know in order to draw the head convincingly. Drawing the Human Head fulfills this hope. Based on the author's widely respected drawing classes at the School of Visual Arts in New York, it is is the most comprehensive book now available on this vital subject. The author does not pretend that this is the ultimate book on the human head. The ultimate book will never be written. After all, Rembrandt, the greatest of all portrait painters, was still discovering new insights about the human head in the final years of his life.
Drawing the Human Head is simply an attempt to organize basic information: systems of proportion. concepts of form, anatomical facts, and other data which have formed the basis of sound draftsmanship for more than 2000 years.
