Vanderpoel's explanations of how he determines proportion is so convoluted as to make it virtually incomprehensible.

Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). Vanderpoel's explanations of how he determines proportion is so convoluted as to make it virtually incomprehensible. I'm sure he was incredibly talented as an artist, but his instruction reads more like a book on geometry than one on drawing.

The Human Figure book.

This classic treatment by a master teacher offers clear, detailed instruction on drawing the human figure. More than 430 pencil and charcoal illustrations depict eyes, arms, feet, and other fundamental features. Topics include shading, curvature, proportion, foreshortening, muscular tension, and major and minor differences in the structure and representation of male and female anatomy.

John Henry Vanderpoel (November 15, 1857 – May 2, 1911), born Johannes (Jan) van der Poel, was a Dutch-American artist and teacher, best known as an instructor of figure drawing. His book The Human Figure, a standard art school resource featuring numerous drawings based on his teaching at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, was published in 1907. Vanderpoel was born in the Haarlemmermeer, Netherlands, the seventh of ten children

The result is the only art instruction book which not only illustrates details of the body but directs your attention at every stage to a host of subtle points of shading, curvature, proportion, foreshortening, muscular tension, variations due to extreme age or youth, and both major and minor differences in the structure and representation of the male and female figure.

Unrivalled teacher. Penetrating comments, suggestions on what to look for, with more than 430 drawings.

New reprint. The pictures in this book are scans of scans of scans. The pictures are grainy, fuzzy, and sometimes different than what is in the original version. The poor scans almost make this version unusable. If you can find an original, get it.
Having been an illustrator for years and artist most of my life, I came upon this book - lost in the overwhelming galaxy of anatomy books for artists online and elsewhere - and bought it thinking it looked okay based on the pictures of the inside of the book on Amazon. I bought it at the same time that I bought about 5 other anatomy books, many of them elaborately illustrated with HD photographs and overlays, often ten times more expensive than this little, compact book written by David Kresz Rubins in 1953. But those other books still - for the most part - sit on my desk in a neat pile only occasionally used.

This book, however, is extraordinary in its simple yet detailed display of muscles and how bones are wrapped in them, how the body can move and why, and why it looks the way it does. The amazingly clear way that Rubins shows each part of the body, layering it up from bones to muscles to skin, and then shows those parts of the body bending and twisting, and how those forms are created by what's beneath - is really tremendously helpful. He's really detailing the architecture of the body, and I've copied his drawings a great deal. (Just this weekend, for instance, I've been copying his wonderful drawings of leg muscles and how legs are structured... and I've learned so much.)

I draw these days on a Cintiq, and next to it is this book, forever bent open to some page from which I am copying anatomical drawings by Rubins. Every time I go through it and closely observe his drawings, draw from them, I discover new about a muscle group or the way the body is formed. It's a jewel of a book.

If you spend time with it and really study and draw from its contents you will advance your anatomical understanding by leagues.
One of the best books about the human figure. It was recommended by one of my art professors and he was so right. Each page has in-depth illustrations with perfect explanations on each part of the body. If you take it step by step through the whole book you will be learning how to identify and draw each part of the body. The art is crisp and clean which is why I recommend taking a colored pencil and filling in each different piece with a color to help you break up each section. The book I ordered was used, but came with no marks, no bent pages and over-all was what I considered to be like-new quality.
I used extensively a copy of the book from the local library and loved it so much that I decided to own one. I ordered the same Dover edition and was disappointed to find out that the quality of the print is much worse than the copy from the library. The bad rating is only due to the poor reprint, the book itself is great
This is a must read/ study and copy text for art students. Be aware that over the years the reproductions are losing details as if something were being copied from a copy etc. What you would expect from etchings but not a modern printing process.
Very nice little book. The illustrations will make for good practice. The book itself, for whatever reason, has a very strong smell of pinesol or something. It's weird and I hope it goes away because it's very strong.

Great book!
This is a nice, concise reference for human figure drawing. It covers each layer with a nice set of of the 4 major angles with some accessory drawings showing how things work. Its not definitive but it is a much smaller and lighter book making it far more portable and far easier to flip through when you need a quick reference.
An amazing excellent book for sculptors and artists. Was first introduced to this book by an art teacher and I am forever grateful. Every artist should have a copy of this book. I cannot stress the priceless worth of this book. A must have.
