First published in 1924, "Bridgman's Life Drawing" is famed art instructor George Bridgman's instructive course on drawing the human anatomy. Bridgman was born in Canada in 1865, but lived most of his life in the United States and studied under painter and sculptor Jean-L on G r me at the cole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, as well as under the famed painter Gustave Boulanger. Bridgman had a long and illustrious career as a teacher of anatomy and figure drawing at the Art Students League of New York. He taught thousands of students over many years, including numerous notable artists such as Norman Rockwell, Will Eisner, Elizabeth Cady Stanton Blake, and Archie Boyd Teater. In "Bridgman's Life Drawing" we find the synthesis of his technique on how to draw the human figure. Bridgman instructs that students must first gain a sense of the movement of the human form by understanding the underlying structure. From this the realistic portrayal of the human figure can be done by building up the form with consideration of light and shadow. Bridgman in turn breaks down the different parts of the anatomy to create a complete instruction manual on life drawing. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.
