Hatton, Richard G. (1910) Figure Drawing


Publisher: G-Books.com


Figure Drawing by Richard G. Hatton (Hon. A.R.C.A., London) is a practical text for the student of figure drawing, approaching the subject in the classical style by teaching anatomy as applied to rendering the human form. Profusely illustrated, primarily with line drawings, as well as photographs, black and white. Major sections of the book include Method and Proportion; The Head and the Neck; The Trunk; The Upper Limb; The Lower Limb; and Drapery.

This is the original British edition from 1910, not the (also out-of-print) reprint by Dover Books in 1965.

The artist studies anatomy in order that he may the better understand what the form of the figure is. Not infrequently he finds, however, that his anatomy has not helped him very much. He finds that it asserts itself in a manner which does not improve his work.... But there can be little doubt that the student needs something different at a certain stage of his career. He wants to be helped with his form and his construction, and to help him effectually the subject must be approached from a draughtsman's standpoint. It is with the hope of fulfilling such a purpose that the present work is issued.
