For centuries, artists have been studying and learning through anatomy, the science of the physical structure of humans and animals. Through it, artists have gained a basic comprehension for their depiction of form and movement of humans and animals in drawing, painting and sculpture. With over 1200 detailed illustrations by the Hungarian Andras Szunyoghy, a master in his field, the "Anatomy Drawing School" is an extensive insight into the bodily composition of humans and selected mammals. Meticulous studies of the skeleton and muscles encourage a better understanding of how this bodily machine is constructed, and how these basic forms can be developed into individual beings. All illustrations are accompanied by clear and detailed comments by Professor Gyorgy Feher. His descriptions go beyond the basic anatomy of the depicted animals to present the reader with a lively picture of the animal as a whole. "The Anatomy Drawing School" unites artistic representation and scientific fact in a standard reference work designed to meet the requirements of all artists and students of drawing as well as everyone interested in anatomy.
Andras Szunyoghy is Professor at the Institute for Anatomical Drawing in the Academy of Applied Arts in Budapest. He is a graphic artist, painter and stamp designer. He expanded his knowledge of human anatomy at the Academy of the Arts as a pupil of Jeno Barcsay, artist and editor of Artistic Anatomy. Professor Gyorgy Feher was a researcher and lecturer at the Institute for Anatomy and Histology at the Budapest Veterinary Science University from 1969 until 1987. In his numerous publications he has since devoted himself to anatomy for artists with particular emphasis on functional and applied anatomy.
