There are many beautiful drawings in here by Durer, Da Vinci, Sanzio, Rubens and Cambiaso to name a few. Robert Beverly Hale uses each drawing to get his point across and has really opened my eyes to the structure of the human body – and I can see great improvements in my own work since reading and following this book.
Hale starts off with the rib cage and lead you through every part of the body and talks in terms of massing, planes and values, landmarks muscles and bone structures of each part of the body. He truly knows his subject and educates the artist to really understand the human form painlessly.
He delivers each topic with subtle humour and with in-depth knowledge. All the drawings are in black and white but don’t let this put you off. If anything this lets you focus on problem of laying down a convincingly rendered drawing
This is my most treasured book on the human form.

Robert Beverly Hale's three books on Artistic Anatomy should be owned by every beginning and professional artist. Beverly Hale shows the reader that to become an adept draftsman,it is best to learn from the drawing masters of all time. Beverly Hale also tells the reader how the best figure draftsmaen,from daVinci to Degas,learned from the works of past great masters.
Reading and learning from Robert Beverly Hale's three books on Artistic Anatomy is like learning the ways of the Force from Yoda himself.
