Now, as if to set that right, LESSONS IN CLASSICAL DRAWING turns the theory into practice, providing not only informative text and inspirational drawings, but adding the bonus of a DVD.
In the history of art 'how-to' books, there are very few acknowledged classics, but this book really deserves to join them. The contents are invaluable, and the high-quality production of the book itself (not to mention the enclosed DVD) combined with the surprisingly inexpensive price really does make the book a must-buy for anyone seriously wanting to draw well or improve their work.
Juliette Aristides is a very serious, absolutely dedicated artist, whose own training took place over a long 8 years in various ateliers and schools under the direction of several US artists working in the classical style, including Myron Barnstone, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, the Nelson Shanks studio, National Academy of Design, with personal tuition from Jacob Collins and Carlos Madrid. Juliette Aristides also studied at the Richard Lack (1928-2009) Atelier which is part of an atelier historical lineage tracing itself back through RH Ives Gammell, to William Mcgregor Paxton, to Jean-Leon Gerome, to Paul Delaroche, and so back to the famous French academic artist, Jaques-Louis David (1748-1825). This lineage gives some idea of the tradition in which Juliette Aristides writes her book. Taking the best methods and practices from each of her teachers she has fused them together and evolved her own ideal method of training aspiring artists, which is probably of a much higher quality than is to be found in most contemporary schools of art. Juliette presently teaches at the Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, US.Read more ›
