Non-Member Price:


An anatomical reference guide for the working artist, sculptor and student, this volume graphically shows important parts of the human body, both in motion and in repose--hands, wrist, thumbs, fingers, forearm, arm, armpit, shoulder, neck, head, eye, nose, ears, mouth, chin, trunk, pelvis, hip, thigh, leg, knee, ankle, foot, and toes. Drawings of bone and muscle structure, of the working of the joints and the interrelation of the various parts of the body, are mainly concerned with movement of all sorts--movements that are described as well as illustrated. Every artist will save tedious hours of research with this simple but effective approach, and will be delighted with its directness and fervor. Paperback, 170 pages.

Rated by: Micah S. in Bluff City, TN
I cannot recommend Bridgeman enough. His books are perfect for learning form for anatomy and his constructions are espcially helpful in aiding students in learning how the anatomy itself functions, giving a firmer grasp of how the body is put together. An invaluable artist to study.
Rated by: Richard O. in Denver, CO
This book and its companion volumes are among the very best anatomy books for painters and sculptors. Bridgman was one of the greatest life drawing instructors at the Art Students League of New York for more than thirty years. He had great skill in being able to communicate to students what anatomy was essential for an artist. The drawings in this book focus the artist’s eye on what is essential for understanding and rendering anatomy. This book is divided into logical chapters and each chapter is intended as a complete lesson. The chapters have both text and detailed illustrations that beautifully illustrate Bridgman’s insights. This book and its companions, collected in “Bridgman’s Complete Guide to Drawing from Life”, are absolutely essential tools for any artist who intends to paint or understand the figure from the classical and realist points of view. For a painter sculptor there are no substitutes.
