This incredible collection contains drawings in which Dürer experimented with many methods: the "anthropometric system," learned from Leonardo; the "exempeda" method, known to most as the man inscribed in a circle, the human figure in motion and much more. While some drawings are theoretical, many more are life studies that rank among the finest ever done. 170 plates.
Paperback, 355 pages
Published June 1st 1972 by Dover Publications (first published 1538)
