Описание: From one of the biggest names in Art Nouveau design comes this splendid visual encyclopedia of superior artistic studies of plants and flowers. Its 120 images were selected from a rare, century-old, four-volume set of botanical illustrations. Cherry blossoms, clematis, crown imperial, and other specimens appear side by side in full-page plates that contrast magnificent color renditions with meticulous black-and-white drawings. A leading designer in the Art Nouveau movement, M. P. Verneuil was particularly interested in the decorative potential of flowers, and he created countless realistic and imaginative floral patterns. In this collection, he spotlights the work of such popular artists as Alphonse Mucha, M. Meheut, and other distinguished illustrators. Captions identify each image. A very useful, wide-ranging reference, this volume will delight artists and lovers of botanical illustration.

Описание: This systematic presentation illustrates the depiction of bones and muscles, both in detailed close-ups and in larger groups. It starts by discussing the proportions of a human adult and proceeds to define the principal terms used in describing anatomy. Subsequent illustrations depict the skull, bones, muscles, veins, and other aspects of the human figure. In addition to captions, the images are complemented by extensive descriptions that explain bone and muscle placement and function. Nearlyfifty finely executed full-page plates and numerous smaller drawings make this a rewarding browsing book as well as an excellent reference for artists."
