This teaching aid written by one of the leading professors of the Department of Drawing of the I. E. Repin Institute is a profound generalization of the teaching practice of drawing in his personal studio at the high school of art. The author shares the method he uses for drawing the human figure and head expounding his view on the sequence of various stages of depiction of form. This treatise may be useful for the young artists trying to improve their skills at depicting the human form. The work reminds one of the infinity of art, its development and perfection. The present teaching aid is unique in its own way among the numerous publications on the methods of teaching drawing skills. The author expresses his own views based on firsthand experience of training future artists. (O. A. Eremeev, Professor, Head of the Department of Drawing of the I. E. Repin St. Petersburg State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture, Full-Fledged Member of the Russian Academy of Arts)
Drawing is the most important, determinative, one might say, component of the artistic process. Its self-dependent artistic value is hardly attainable without preliminary, at times long practice, comprehension of drawing methods. The aid written by V. A. Mogilevtsev, one of the most experienced pedagogues of the Department of Drawing of the I. E. Repin Institute of the Russian Academy of Arts, is aimed to help a young artist to master the skills of drawing the human head and figure. Many years’ personal experience of teaching enabled the author to create a clear distinct system of work on a drawing. It is of crucial importance that the practical part of the book successively uncovering the stages of work finds its substantiation and development in the reproductions of works by the celebrated masters. No doubt the given aid will be popular with those who aim to unearth the mysteries of the world of Art. (N. S. Kuteinikova, Honored Artist of the Russian Federation, Candidate of Art History, Professor of the Department of Drawing of the I. E. Repin St. Petersburg State Academic Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture)
