Description

For art students working with the human figure, this comprehensive study of the bones, muscles, and surface forms of the living body will be one of the most useful (and most used) additions they can make to their private libraries. More than 150 illustrations, mostly full-page photographs and labeled sketches of undraped male and female bodies, provide the reader with anatomical studies of unrivaled clarity and unquestioned accuracy.
After an introduction covering the proportions of the adult male, the adult female, and the infant at various ages, the author devotes 50 pages to the human skeletal system. Besides pictures and detailed drawings of the major bones of the body, he also includes x-rays showing the bone structure of the hand and foot and the movements of the shoulder, elbow, and knee joints.
A section on the muscular system follows, including reproductions of the remarkable Albinus engravings ("The most beautiful and among the most accurate anatomical figures ever published." — Charles Singer), 36 photographs and labeled sketches of living models, and seven drawings showing the attachments of muscles to the skeleton. The book concludes with a number of poses and action photographs illustrating surface anatomy in various actions such as dancing and throwing a ball.
This is one of the few and perhaps the best of those books that teach anatomy using chiefly living objects for their illustrative work. By doing so, it fills an urgent need, for most art students cannot afford living models or expensive courses in anatomy. Now, however, they can use this practical and inexpensive home-study course to achieve a clearer insight into the complicated mechanism of the human body, as simplified by Dr. Farris.

PREFACE

The purpose of this book is to describe to art students in as simple a manner as possible the essential anatomy of the living body. In the study of anatomy, it is advisable for the student to master: first, the skeleton and its surface projections; second, the muscles and their surface projections; and third, the surface form as affected by various actions. The author hopes to assist the student in accomplishing this chiefly by illustrations, photographs of living models, and roentgenograms. Text is used only to emphasize the importance of illustrations.

Close observation of one’s self, as well as of others at work and at play will prove exceedingly beneficial in the mastery of anatomy. When a living model is available, the student should observe most carefully the details of the surface anatomy, and should train himself to do memory sketches of the model using these details as a premise to assist the expression of the artist.

Our great masters of art realized that a thorough understanding of anatomy was a necessary instrument in the portrayal of art, and Leonardo da Vinci, though known as an artist, merits the reputation of a great anatomist by reason of his accurate anatomical sketches and contributions to this subject.

In this book are reproductions of the great work of Siegfried Albinus, an anatomic illustrator of the early 18th century. These muscle and skeleton plates have been described by Dr. Charles Singer as the most beautiful and among the most accurate anatomical figures ever published. In order to have
