The Nude Female Figure : A Visual Reference for the Artist, Paperback

The Nude Female Figure : A Visual Reference for the Artist Paperback


"The Nude Female Figure" is a compilation of hundreds of classic poses of the female nude.

These full colour photographs are grouped into the various traditional positions you would find in any classic positions: standing, seated, kneeling, crouching, reclining, bending, as well as posts in motion and a special section that focuses on hands and feet, both parts of the body that present a special challenge to the artist.

The models in the book represent a wide range of figure types, from the shapely and slender to the more mature and Rubenesque, as well as a variety of ethnic types.

Just about every artist without access to a figure drawing studio will have use for this invaluable work of reference.
