With new perspective, unique feelings and expression methods, Bridgman explains the wonders of drawing bodies and shows the aesthetic feeling of bodies in movement which is really an eye-opener and makes readers cheerful. Although this book also serves the function of artistic anatomy, the whole book is mainly on the essence of art(Anatomy is only the way to understand the body ). Bridgman changes the complicated body postures into simple combinations of basic cubes with vivid pictures and expresses the three-dimensional changes of body with a realistic method and three-dimensional modeling method .

George B. Bridgman (1865–1943) was a celebrated Canadian-American artist and lecturer who taught figure and anatomy drawing for many years at New York City’s Art Students League. His previous books, assembled in this volume, separately garnered significant popularity and respect within the artistic community, and they continue to post strong sales.From Library Journal:
It's rare to find good, comprehensive books on drawing the anatomy. Each of these the first, the return of a classic; the second, a focused study; and the third, lessons from the masters deserves a place on library shelves. Bridgman was a legendary teacher at New York's Art Students' League. There, he originated a system of drawing known as "constructive anatomy." In 1952, his seven books on anatomy were gathered into one volume, which became a standard work at art schools and universities. Published now for the first time in paperback, it holds up as an indispensable volume, with more than 200 illustrations of hands and hundreds of images of arms, shoulders, heads, torsos, legs, knees, and feet. Fairley's book concentrates on those troublesome extremities hands and feet. Sketchbook exercises are followed by eight detailed painting demonstrations in watercolor, oil, and other media. Fairley then continues on to portraits in which variations in age, skin tone, composition, mood, and movement are integrated. Advanced students will find Hale and Coyle's Anatomy Lessons from the Great Masters a rich source of inspiration. Hale, like Bridgman, was one of the great teachers at the Art Students' League. His student, Coyle, gathered together Hale's famous lectures to produce this compendium. Hale drew on principles found in 100 masterpieces by such artists as Leonardo, Michelangelo, Rubens, Raphael, D?rer, Titian, and Rembrandt. In 1995, Giovanni Civardi's trilogy Drawing Human Anatomy (Sterling, 1995), Drawing the Female Nude (Sterling, 1995), and Drawing the Male Nude (LJ 3/15/96. o.p.) reached a high standard for good, basic books in this genre. These three surpass Civardi's works and are highly recommended for serious artists and comprehensive library collections.
