Johann Gottfried Schadow - Die Zeichnungen - The Drawings



Johann Gottfried Schadow. Die Zeichnungen


Approximately 2200 drawings make up this extensive survey of the graphic work of Johann Gottfried Schadow who is well known for his sculptures but less well known for his drawings.

The book includes drawings after antique sculpture, animal, nude and motion studies, portraits of his contemporaries, monuments and cartoons.

He was mostly interested in physiognomy and this book includes examples of his studies of the
physique and growth of humans from infant to old man. These works were published in 1834 and 1835 in Polyklet oder von den Massen des Menschen or Polykleitos or Guide to the Proportions of the Human Form and Nationalphysiognomien.
