Book Overview

A book whose sales have not diminished but rather increased dramatically since its publication 45 years ago, this bestselling classic is the ultimate manual of drawing taught by the late Robert Beverly Hale, who's famed lectures and classes at New York City's Art Student League captivated artists and art educators from around the world.

Faithfully producing and methodically analyzing 100 master drawings--including works of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Rodin, Goya, and Rembrandt among others--Hale shows how these artists tackled basic problems such as line, light and planes, mass, position and thrust, and anatomy. With detailed analytical captions and diagrams, every lesson is clearly delineated and illustrated. Throughout, also, is commentary that sheds light on the creative process of drawing and offers deep insight into the unsurpassed achievements of the masters.

   Teaches you to "see" a classical piece
I am an art student and found this so helpful and instructive. The commentary was helpful in training my eye to see a work from a technical and aesthetic perspective. Hale was a master teacher and this book includes his specific teachings with his insightful points annotated on the plates. This helpful books are rare.

   Best book about drawing ever!
One of the best books on drawing! I bought it a big sketchbook and begin to copy each page by page of the drawings by masters with explanations from master designers, Mr Robert Beverly Hale. From each page I started to notice how drawing works, what to do about line, contours, light and how to observe a human figure. This is like you have a master teacher with you. Almost in your voice you can hear his voice. I would recommend this to anyone who works with visual arts and whants to expand the understanding of it.

There are so many golden nuggets of wisdom hidden in the book that rereading it will present more as you improve your artistic skills. Not receiving this book is a mistake, especially if you are an artist who is striving for growth.
