Описание: This classic of art instruction is the work of James Duffield Harding (1798-1863), who served as drawing master and sketching companion to the great Victorian art critic, John Ruskin. Generations of students have benefited from the teachings of this 19th-century master, who sought always to "produce as near a likeness to Nature, in every respect, as the instrument, or material employed, will admit of; not so much by bona fide imitation, as by reviving in the mind those ideas which are awakened by a contemplation of Nature . . . The renewal of those feelings constitutes the true purpose of Art." This volume consists of direct reproductions of Harding's sketches of vignettes from natural settings. Each is accompanied by a series of lessons emphasizing both practical and theoretical considerations. The edition features the added attraction of 23 outstanding plates from the author's Lessons on Trees.

Описание: Packed with indispensable information on a vital aspect of drawing, this time-honored manual offers expert guidance on how to draw shirts, pants, skirts, gloves, hats, coats, and undergarments on the human figure. Step by simple step, artists will discover how these garments fit and drape the body at rest and in action. Abundant with detailed illustrations, photographs, and diagrams, Drawing Drapery from Head to Toe familiarizes readers with the properties of cloth and how it moves; it also examines the origins of folds in relation to the figure, the effects of pull and crush, action folds, creasing, and more. The result: a keen development of the essential techniques for creating realistic, masterfully rendered drawings of the clothed figure. One of few books on the subject of drawing drapery, this volume was written by a noted artist and instructor. Easy to follow, full of fascinating advice, and highly enjoyable to read, it is sure to become a well-thumbed guide.
Описание: With Rubinstein considered Liszt's only possible rival on the concert stage, and Carreno as the foremost woman pianist of the late nineteenth century, it is an unexpected gift that both have left behind insights into that supremely important but grossly neglected aspect of performance called "the soul of the piano": the art of piano pedaling. Their treatment of pedaling is of the utmost importance, not only from a historical standpoint, but for what it can still teach even the most sophisticated player. Rubinstein's pedaling technique is explored using specific examples from a vast repertoire of works he performed in 1885-6. Carreno's observations written in a warm, non-academic style explore her sensitivity to the most subtle keyboard colorings made possible through combinations of touch and pedal."
Описание: In this comprehensive study of the art of drawing with a pen, artist and author Joseph Pennell highlights his opinionated "technical suggestions" with more than 400 illustrations by 250 famous artists, including Titian, Durer, Rembrandt, Rodin, Manet, Renoir, Beardsley, Pyle, Hiroshige, van Gogh, Rackham, and other masters from around the globe. Each of the high-quality reproductions is accompanied by a critique of its style and execution and occasional comparisons to the artist's other works and those of contemporaries.
Featured images range from landscapes by Titian, Rembrandt, and Corot to figure studies by Durer, Goya, and Rodin and portraits by Manet and Matisse. The tremendous variety of subjects extends to street scenes by Toulouse Lautrec and van Gogh, episodes from literature envisioned by Rossetti, Burne-Jones, and Millais, and decorations by Crane and Morris. A visual treasure trove and valuable reference, this volume will serve as an enduring source of instruction and inspiration for artists of all skill levels.
