RICHARD BARNET and the Study of Anatomy

Richard Barnet's approach to drawing and figure construction is useful to artists working representationally as well as to those working abstractly.

Good figure drawing is composed of such elements as contour, linear perspective, and modeling form in light and shade.

Knowledge of anatomy is useful for artists creating the human figure, whether from direct observation of models or from imagination.

The interplay between observation and imagination is at the heart of anatomy for artists, as Mr. Barnet understands it.

In most classes, he gives an illustrated lecture acquainting students with the elements of drawing.

Over many classes he surveys the anatomy of the entire human figure.

As both a sculptor and a watercolor painter, Mr. Barnet encourages students to explore working in sculpture, paint and other media.

Such work is often a natural extension or consequence of drawing.

Richard Barnet teaches drawing at the Art Students League of NY.
