À propos de ce livre

This magnificent art book re-creates an extremely rare 1849 guide to anatomy, originally compiled for `artists, painters, and sculptors.` Unavailable for more than 150 years, this classic work features 30 plates with 105 highly detailed and finely executed black-and-white lithographs.
These realistic and meticulously accurate drawings illustrate form as well as function, offering artists a mastery of anatomy through careful, knowledgeable articulation of the muscles and bones beneath the skin. Each image appears with an identifying caption, and this new edition offers the convenience of a CD-ROM that includes every illustration from the book. In addition to its value as a resource for practicing artists, this beautiful browsing book will captivate anyone who has an interest in the human body.

The first plate contains eight lithographic engravings of the skeleton of the head and face, in four of the leading varieties, or races of men. In all these races, the female head, not represented here, differs from the male head; but most perhaps in the European. Although the skeleton of the head, and more especially that of the face, can afford to the artist but imperfect ideas of the actual form of the human face, when clothed with all its soft structures and animated with life and intelligence, it may yet be a useful exercise for the artist to draw these forms pretty frequently, in order to obtain correct notions of the osseous structures forming the basis, as it were, of the wonderful superstructure raised upon them. It will enable him also to judge more accurately of the relative proportions of the face to the cranium; of the very peculiar setting on of the face in the dark races of men, &c. The great size of the upper jawbones and malar or cheek bones in the dark races, even in the Mongolian and Hindoo, will not escape his observation; this peculiarity being not at all confined to the Negro and affiliated races, as has been very generally supposed. The CaraĂŻb Head may be taken as the type, somewhat exaggerated, of the Aboriginal Race of America. On all convenient occasions, the artistic student ought to compare these drawings with the heads themselves. Most Museums contain the actual specimens. In a word, let the student recollect that in drawing these heads, he is sketching dead farms, not seen in living nature, and, as I have already explained, not intended to be seen; and that these forms, if they deserve the name, have but meagre relations to the grander exterior forms with which Nature clothes and conceals the internal anatomy from human sight.
