Praised by critics and teachers alike for more than 40 years, Burne Hogarth’s Dynamic Anatomy is recognized worldwide as the classic, indispensable text on artistic anatomy. Now revised, expanded, and completely redesigned with 75 never-before-published drawings from the Hogarth archives and 24 pages of new material, this award-winning reference explores the expressive structure of the human form from the artist’s point of view.
The 400 remarkable illustrations explain the anatomical details of male and female figures in motion and at rest, always stressing the human form in space. Meticulous diagrams and fascinating action studies examine the rhythmic relationship of muscles and their effect upon surface forms. The captivating text is further enhanced by the magnificent figure drawings of such masters as Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Rodin, Picasso, and other great artists.
Dynamic Anatomy presents a comprehensive, detailed study of the human figure as artistic anatomy. This time-honored book goes far beyond the factual elements of anatomy, providing generations of new artists with the tools they need to make the human figure come alive on paper.
BURNE HOGARTH (1911–1996), hailed as the “Michaelangelo of the comic strip,” was one of the most iconic cartoonists and influential arts educators of the twentieth century and remains so today. After attending the Chicago Art Institute and Academy of Fine Arts at the age of fifteen, Hogarth began an illustrious career in arts education, fine arts, illustration, advertising, and comics, and became recognized as one of the earliest creators of the graphic novel. Best known for his innovative illustrations of the syndicated Sunday Tarzan, Hogarth broke fresh ground in the newspaper comic strip by combining classicism, expressionism, and narrative in
a powerful, new way.
As cofounder of the School of Visual Arts—one of the world’s leading art schools—he brought his unique approach to art into the classroom. His passionate lectures on anatomy and art history formed the foundation for The Burne Hogarth® Dynamic Drawing Series that continues to teach and influence artists and animators worldwide.
Hogarth’s art has been exhibited in many important galleries around the world including the Louvre in the Museé des Arts Décoratifs and Marseilles’ Bibliothèque. He traveled the world throughout his life receiving numerous international awards and accolades.

Side note: Motor City Books (whom I bought this book from used through Amazon) needs to at least check what is in their books before they ship them. This creepy note fell out of it.
Best of all, in combination with "Dynamic Figure Drawing", he teaches us how to build a person in any pose in your mind and then render and sculpt that form in three dimensions on paper (or screen) without any need to reference anything. Don't try to do it with "Dynamic Figure Drawing" alone. I started with that book and couldn't wait to jump into "Dynamic Anatomy" to get a better understanding of the fundamentals.
The books are so good (and affordable), that even though I could have easily continued to check them out from the library, I purchased them to have the ultimate reference on hand at all times. They're a must for anyone rendering the human form.
A piece of art. If you are a beginner and you need colors and all that sugary post production to be motivated to draw, forget it. This book is art in itself. I first saw this book on an Italian edition on my father's library circa 1979-95. This one is even better. If you simply repeat the models that are in there to do your own versions of the images, I can almost guarantee that you will feel that your gaze has changed when you look at people. Yes, his anatomy responds to a sort of graphic methodology, call it, a bit codified.. It has to be. Just don't get dependent on the aesthetic code implied in it and use the tool instead of you being used by it.
The cover for this book looks far better than the online image (the one I am talking about can only be found used) the blue background and bright orange lettering works well and on the picture I saw online I was very disappointed, and bought it in spite of that. ... In real life.... The blue is not flat but calmly pearled, and the lettering is also far more subdued than the saturated image you see online. That is the only detail. It's great.
