From the Back Cover:

Highly acclaimed as one of the most comprehensive and dynamic explorations of figure drawing available, this innovative and in-depth text brings together the structural, anatomical, organizational, and expressive factors that make for more compelling creative representations of the human form.

Author Nathan Goldstein examines the universal conditions and forces at work in the best examples of figure drawing by old and contemporary masters alike, and incorporates almost 500 examples, including a full set of his own, clear, anatomical illustrations.

SIXTH EDITION HIGHLIGHTS
  • NEW—Features an expanded Chapter Eight, which now contains 49 photographs of the human figure.
  • NEW—Features additional works of art new to this edition.
  • NEW—A glossary of terms to increase the ease of reading for the user.

For anyone interested in refreshing or broadening their understanding of drawing, this how-to-see-it book enhances the ability to experience and state the world in visual terms that communicate, and to better comprehend the options and obstacles often confronted when drawing.

Nathan Goldstein emphasizes drawing as a responsive encounter with the physical world and examines the following factors: a subject's measurable, structural actualities, its relational possibilities, and its emotive character. He explores the tools and materials of drawing, and the concepts, forces, and "pathologies," or common failings of perception, organization, and expression in drawing. In addition, Goldstein presents suggested exercises to help the reader experience the concepts and processes dealt with in each chapter.
