One of the most renowned faculty members of the Art Students League of New York, the legendary George Bridgman taught in classrooms and studios for 50 years. Lucky students are still learning from Bridgman today, thanks to his popular art instruction books, which focus on the intricacies of the human figure. This collection features three of his finest guides:
