Anatomy for the Artist. Jeno Barcsay. This superb art manual is the best guide available on a subject that has fascinated artists for centuries: the human body. Jen Barcsay, a professor who taught applied anatomy at the Budapest Academy of Fine Arts, offers a detailed portrayal of the body for the fine artist in full-page plates. From the entire skeleton and the joints in and out of motion to all the muscles and even facial characteristics, every body part appears in close-up and from varying perspectives. Accompanying the images are brief discussions of male and female anatomical construction, explaining precisely the articulations and movement of the foot, the arm, the trunk, the spinal column, and the skull.

I was going to give the book 3 stars BUT I blame myself for my dissatisfaction.
The book itself is quite nice and I have no complaints at all with the text or illustrations per say. It's just the book is smaller than I anticipated.. I should have checked the dimensions of the book which is 8. I also feel that is some cases, there are too many pictures on one page leading to more "size issues". I wanted a book from which I could draw copies of the anatomical illustrations.
This book doesn't work for me in that manner. Having said all that, the info and the pictures are lovely. I just wish it were a larger book with larger pictures 7. If you have someone interested in Life Drawing get this book. Best book to start out with anatomy and illustration. A little routine I learned was to trace the bones and than draw the muscles over the bones you traced from the book.
You will be already for your Life Drawing class after performing this routine. Outstanding, and no wonder it's been in print for a half century. It can be bought new, but I purchased a copy from a printing back in the s. It was in immaculate condition, but the volume is large enough 10x13 and over pages , that it is a bit fragile. Just something to take into consideration if you're trying to decide between old and new. I like the older version, and I'm careful going through it, but it would not be a good choice for a shared copy liable to get hard use.
The images are very detailed, but the book is very confusing to read. There are index's for the drawings that are not on the same page or are several pages away and you have to flip back and forth to find out what you are looking at.
Bought it used for my figure drawing class my teacher recommended it as a required text. The overall quality of the book for being used was great. There was only a bit of writing in pencil that I could easily erase, no tears and everything is perfectly legible.
