Louis Slobodkin offers the young reader a clear analytical course on drawing. Anatomy, perspective and other technical problems are defined and simple approaches to them are described. Integrated in the practical instructions of the text are remarks on the techniques of specific painters and their schools. Illustrated by the author and with examples of artists' works, Mr. Slobodkin takes a healthy, enthusiastic attitude toward his reader, one which is designed to encourage a relaxed and eager approach to the problems of drawing. Excellent for classroom and home use.
