This book is based on the figure drawing notebook of a young student in Philadelphia in 1927 and 1928. It illustrates the methods of drawing the figure which were used at the time, and will be interesting to anyone learning to draw the figure today. The drawings show the work of a confident and talented artist who was studying a new course of drawing from the figure. Formerly students at the school had draw from casts and prints and studied the rules of perspective. The book includes all the drawings from Grace Young's notebook plus examples of the knowledge of figure drawing from the time.
