The author of the 20th anniversary Calla Edition of the phenomenal bestseller Dinotopia, John Gurney is a master at bringing perspective realism and scientific accuracy to his artwork. Mr. Gurney is also a huge admirer of Dover's line of art instruction books and has graciously compiled a list of his ten favorite titles, which includes Edouard Lanteri's Carlson's Modelling and Sculpting the Human Figure. Here is what he had to say:
"This classic text from an associate of Rodin guides the sculptor through the theory and practice needed to successfully interpret the figure in three dimensions. It covers basic technique, materials, and anatomy. Although the text is extensive and old fashioned, it provides a rare window into the working methods and thought processes that led to some of the greatest masterpieces of figural sculpture."
