After a big success of publication on academic drawing (Fundamentals of Drawing), a leading art professor at the Russian Academy of Arts, Prof. V.A. Mogilevtsev has managed to create yet another important book on art fundamentals. This teaching aid follows the same structure as its predecessor, while offering a complete overview on academic painting, a discipline that is built on traditional art education.
The result of the author's four years of hard work is this well-illustrated book with excellent visual explanations that include tables, studies and paintings by old masters. The Fundamentals of Painting presents a classical system of teaching while illustrating each stage of work in very laconic, straight to the point text.
- Great reference.
- Classic "old masters" approach, time-tested methods.
- Teaches basics for a strong foundation for future art.
- Instructional text, studies, paintings and reproductions from old masters.
