5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Praised by critics and teachers alike for more than forty years, Burne Hogarth's Dynamic Anatomy is recognised worldwide as the classic, indispensable text on artistic anatomy.

Now revised, expanded and completely redesigned with more than 75 never before published drawings from the Hogarth archives and 24 pages of new material.

This award-winning book brilliantly reveals the live, expressive structure of the human form.

Superb action studies and practical diagrams show how to render the anatomical details of the figure in motion and at rest.

Over 400 remarkable illustrations explain the anatomical details of male and female figures in motion and at rest, always stressing the human form in space.

This revised and expanded edition of Dynamic Anatomy initiates the re-launch of all six titles in the series.
