A monumental work by the father of modern artistic anatomy, Dr. Paul Richer. This book emphasizes the variations which make each person unique. Richer describes features which are similar between men and women, and highlights those that are different. Available for the first time in English with Allana M. Benham's translation.

"This new English edition presents Richer's brilliant and unique analyses of female form, illustrated with Richer's own line drawings and beautiful halftone drawings. Extensive information on female form and the anatomical structures creating it, had been seriously lacking from the literature until Richer wrote this book. It is now happily available in Allana M. Benham's translation from the original French. This definitive reference belongs in the library of every figurative artist."
