This drawing course gives you the opportunity to master realistic studies of various animals.
The book contains illustrations from two famous french artists. Grand Cours d' Animaux was a drawing course by Hippolyte Lalaisse and additional drawings from Juliette Peyrol Bonheur were sold in art houses Paris & New York in the 19th century.
Carefully copy these classical fine art animal drawings and improve your drawing skills accordingly.
I totally support the point of view of French art teachers of the 19th century that fine art students need to study the rich traditions of the classical art.
French schools at that time advocated the following sequence of art education:
- Drawing copies of classical art plates
- Copying drawings by the Old Masters
- Drawing classical casts - busts and figures
- Drawing live models
You can become an expert artist by training in the proven traditional classical way.
Should you buy a copy of this book?
If you're really serious about improving drawing skills, and you're willing to put in some hard hours of practice, then yes, you should definitely buy it.
If you just love drawing and have cash to burn, you should buy it.
If you're in the habit of buying art instruction books but you cant really draw that much, this book isn't going to magically help you draw better.
But neither is any art book.
