Gorgeously illustrated and practical, this guide to the art of drawing employs a close analysis of great works to reveal techniques and lessons that will help practitioners at every level. The art of drawing is an essential skill for any artist. This beautifully produced book uses 100 great works on paper as its lessons. Each spread features a reproduction of one work, and offers invaluable lessons about the approaches and techniques the artist used. Organized into chapters on nudes, figures, landscapes, still life, heads, fantasy, and abstraction, the book breaks down the featured works in different ways. For instance it explores how differences in tone and shadow bring life to a standing figure and how many different weights of line can be achieved with one crayon. In addition, readers can learn from the artist's own words in quotations drawn from interviews and archival materials. There is no better way to learn a skill than from the masters. Beginning and experienced artists can learn from masters as diverse as Kandinsky, Rubens, Monet, da Vinci, Basquiat, Beckman, and Miro, while professionals in the field will find great value in side-by-side comparisons of works from different genres and eras.

The purpose of this volume is to introduce the reader to the pleasure of looking at master drawings. Through forty-five spectacular works of art, each shown in full and with an enlarged detail, the book simulates the experience of looking at a drawing through a magnifying glass: we can see the techniques and materials used and get close to the artist's creativity. They are roughly ordered by date and were chosen for inclusion because, in addition to yielding beautiful details, they encompass a wide variety of media and techniques. Accompanying short texts highlight particular aspects of each work; italicized technical terms are explained in an accessible and informative glossary at the back. Works by some of the greatest masters of the craft--Leonardo da Vinci, Dürer, Raphael, Rembrandt, Ingres, Goya, Seurat, and Van Gogh--are included. The reader will gain insights into why artists made drawings, how they used the media available to them--including red chalk, watercolor, pen and ink, and pastel--and their techniques, such as hatching, stumping, squaring, and heightening. This beautiful and unpretentious book will have a wide appeal and will be especially invaluable for art students, practicing artists, and those who study art and art history.

The book opens with a brief history of earlier drawings and a discussion of the various artistic problems which drawings could help to resolve. Through the works of the major fifteenth-century draughtsmen - Pisanello, Jacopo Bellini, Pollaiuolo, Ghirlandaio, Carpaccio and Leonardo da Vinci - Francis Ames-Lewis then explores new types of drawing evolved during the century: the free sketch contrasting with the frozen control of the model-book, the exploratory study of the nude, the preparatory compositional sketch and the cartoon. He considers the problems and possibilities of different techniques and investigates studio practice and the relation of the drawing to the final work of art." "This incisive introduction to the subject of early Renaissance drawings throws fresh light on one of the great centuries of Italian art, and by reflection illuminates further the activities of the masters of the High Renaissance.
