Anatomy and Perspective


The Fundamentals of Figure Drawing

by Charles Oliver

The fundamentals of figure drawing—anatomy and perspective—seldom receive a thorough treatment within the same book. This volume, written by an experienced teacher, covers both aspects and provides a basic understanding of how to convey the structure and functions of the human figure. Oliver discusses and illustrates the principles involved in figure drawing—including its representation by such simple forms as the cube, the cylinder, and the sphere-as well as anatomical features, from the trunk and limbs to the head and facial features.
