Review Text A variety of sketches depicting bone and muscle structure, as well as human features, illustrate these lessons in drawing human forms. Bridgman’s superb anatomical sketches, of which there are nearly in the book, also bring clearly to fruition his lucid theories of how to draw the human body in its structure and its complex movements. The concepts are exciting, but Bridgman writes like the Pope talks.

Not a tutorial by any means. Drawings of bone and muscle structure of the working of the joints and the interrelation of the various parts of the body are mainly concerned with movement of all sorts — movements that are described in detail as well as illustrated. There’s a bit of an intro brldgman each part of the body which is pretty interesting and good to follow Albinus on Anatomy Bernhard Siegfried Albinus.

The Human Machine George B. Bridgman renders like an old-master’s pencil sketches, but that’s not actually helpful: Aug 18, Des Small rated it anqtomy was ok. Return to Book Page.

Constructive Anatomy by George B. Bridgman

Bridgman gives us a series of breakdowns from perfect anatomical accuracy through more manageable shapes representative of the original structures, all the way to “masses” that take in the totality of a large anatomical grouping.

Think in masses, define them in lines.

Nov 17, Parka rated it really liked it Shelves: Preview — Constructive Anatomy by George B. The Energetic Line in Figure Drawing. Mustafa rated it really liked it Dec 15, Thanks for telling us about the problem.

This is a classic on figure drawing and I highly recommend it as a companion book to any other textbook on the subject. In the muscles are expressed, therefore, laws of dynamics and of power.


There’s mostly drawings for reference and what little text appears is explanatory and referential. The bending, twisting,and turning, creasing and interlocking of the various parts of the body are represented in drawing as the wedging of masses in specific ways that are clearly defined by Mr.


Rather than learning how to draw all the tendons, bones and muscle groups of for example the shoulder, you are shown how the mass of the shoulder should look, and why. I don’t bbridgman understand all of it; in constrictive than twenty years I still haven’t mastered its topic to a level of equality with the author; and I’m sure the author himself is not the be-all “A book reads the better which is our own, and has been so long known to us, that we know the topography of its blots, and dog’s ears, and can trace the dirt in it to having read it at tea with buttered muffins.
