Alt with in detail Sections on light and shade comparative measurements and principles of cube and oval construction further enhance the scope of the book The finely executed drawings complement the textual material illustrating allimportant concepts Of special value is the author's inclusion of the work of famous portrait artists Vermeer Hals Rembrandt Reynolds Louise Elisabeth LeBrun these are the people who made portraiture a master art and you'll be able to study up close and at your leisure the ualities that let their work achieve the status it did. The few descriptions given by Bridgman are very wordy and all over the place It is hard to keep track with what he s referring toFor the ear The ear is vertically on a line with the receding portion of the jawbone and lies horizontally between the lines of the brow and the base of the nose The whole book is like this Takes a few reads to know exactly what he means which is unnecessarily complicated a simple diagram would have explained it perfectly But he seems to be against using them or just didn t think to do soA majority of the descriptions are also just definitions for the anatomical names of the parts of the face which is irrelevant to go into such detail for an art bookAlso half the book is just stories about artists and presidents each with a single page of some illustration of one of their works Interesting and enjoyable to see but not helpful art wiseAnd the book is uite sexist not uncommon for the 1930s The one female artist he talks about all he can say about her is how incredible her salesman husband was for selling her work and how he shouted it from the rooftops and how he doesn t know if she d be where she was without him No mention of her talentsApart from all that the illustrations are very uniue and most are informative and an interesting look on how the face is constructed Not very methodical but just to look at they are interestingOverall glad to have but for entertainment rather than a guidestudy book

    I would expect better industrial quality of the book I understand that the price comes with basic features It’s not a leather bound, but the pages are horrible, the whole composition of the pages are ugly and the flexibility of the book is just amateur to say the least Don’t bother, get a PDF.

    I have absolutely no idea why this book is rated as highly as it is on In terms of instruction on how to draw things, it is very poor Originally published in the 30’s, the instruction is vague (at best) The writing is antiquated and out of d

    It's a well enough produced book just not worth the price as it's very short on page count (start at page 6 ends page 64) I'm getting some of the other books in this series but it feels like they're spreading them across books when they don't need to The human figure by Vanderpoel which I also got, is a much superior book.I'm saying this as a former art student/now artist, probably still worth getting just don't expect too much.
