A Guide to Drawing the Human Figure

Our Decorative Arts and Material Culture Collection has something for anyone who appreciates art. One Collection in particular, the Johann Hienrich Ramberg pictorial guide to drawing the human figure, is perfect for anyone who loves to draw or sketch.

Ramberg (1763-1840) was one of the most popular illustrators in Germany. He worked in a variety of media but his strength was in linework. This compendium contains variously-dated plates, including studies of heads, limbs, and bodies in multiple views.

The guide demonstrates the various ways to sketch multiple parts of the human figure. One page contains images over 100 ways to draw a hand and foot.

Anyone who has ever tried to sketch the human figure will appreciate the techniques found in this book.
