Product description


"If only we students of art could learn from some of the best picture makers of the 20th Century. As a young professional many years ago, I studied the principles set down in the Famous Artist School for decades, and at quite a price tag I might add. What a pleasure to discover this budget-minded treasure trove of word and picture from the superstars of American illustration. It includes such luminaries as Norman Rockwell, Harold Von Schmidt, Albert Dorne, and oh so many others. Absolutely invaluable!" -- Steve Huston, author of Figure Drawing for Artists
