MICHELANGELO: A Lesson in Anatomy

For the art student's copy book, the sketches and sculptures of Michelangelo have been selected to illustrate the artist's system of fashioning the human figure, focusing on individual parts of the body--whether hands and feet, the musculature of limbs and shoulders, the angle of the head and torso. There are 73 superb large-scale plates of David et al., and the introduction is a collage of contemporary Renaissance observations about Michelangelo.
