Art Anatomy and Figure Drawing






Art Anatomy and Figure Drawing was drawn and written by George Hirsch and published in 1944. It is a very complete small magazine sized book about figure drawing. He has a great sure line and the pages are full of pictures which are a combination of shaded figure studies plus accompanying studies of anatomy showing either muscle structure or bone structure.

He studied at the ART STUDENTS LEAGUE and taught anatomy, life drawing and commercial art at the New York School of Art for professionals only.
