Weekly Lectures – Artistic Anatomy

Anatomy Plate, detail from Parthenon metope, Carracci drawing, Prud’hon drawing 

This week’s illustrated lecture begins the series on Artistic Anatomy.  Using constructive perceptions of drawing the human figure, these lectures are delivered through a combination of part slide show, part demonstration.  The goal is to inform what we see with what we know, using examples from different periods in the history of art to illustrate specific concepts.

This year’s presentation has been developed to co-ordinate weekly anatomical lessons with the actual model’s pose from evening figure drawing sessions.
