Drawing from Life explores revolutionary drawing and sketching in the early People's Republic of China (1949-1965) in order to discover how artists created a national form of socialist realism. Tracing the development of seminal works by the major painters Xu Beihong, Wang Shikuo, Li Keran, Li Xiongcai, Dong Xiwen, and Fu Baoshi, author Christine I. Ho reconstructs how artists grappled with the representational politics of a nascent socialist art. The divergent approaches, styles, and genres presented in this study reveal an art world that is both heterogeneous and cosmopolitan. Through a history of artistic practices in pursuit of Maoist cultural ambitions--to forge new registers of experience, new structures of feeling, and new aesthetic communities--this original book argues that socialist Chinese art presents a critical, alternative vision for global modernism.

The leading textbook for college figure-drawing classes, DRAWING FROM LIFE provides a clear, comprehensive, and thought-provoking guide to drawing the human form for anyone interested in exploring this time-honored artistic tradition. For centuries, drawing the human figure has given artists the tools and vocabulary for creating paintings, sculpture, drawings, or prints—from Renaissance classical to contemporary expression. In addition to working from the model, the figure-drawing student needs instruction in anatomy, history, and conceptual approaches to drawing the human form; such instruction is often missing from life drawing classes due to time constraints. DRAWING FROM LIFE offers these elements, along with a tremendous selection of drawings that represent the broad range of approaches, techniques, and media for drawing from life. The chapters follow the natural development of a student's growth, from fundamental sketching and gesture drawing to creative expression and exploration. An entire chapter on drawing the figure in perspective offers information that is not available in comparable textbooks. Students begin with quick sketches and gesture drawings, giving them a non-threatening introduction on a level they can readily understand and master. The cohesive presentation of anatomy, including a chapter on the human head, helps students understand the human structure and its impact on visible form. The final section brings the concepts, vocabulary, and history presented in the earlier chapters to bear on contemporary use of the figure in art.

"This is a book about life, not just about drawing from life. For forty years I have drawn the naked human body in all its variations on the human theme: white, black, male, female, fat, thin, young and old. It led me to doing ever less "looking-at" and ever more seeing--seeing humans in wonder and reverence. " So that is the body you have to live in, " has often gone through my head. the seeing and the drawing gradually became the single undivided act I called seeing/drawing...an ongoing meditation by hand and eye combined that taught me more about life than any psychologizing and philosophizing.- Frederick Franck

James McMullan, one of America's most celebrated illustrators, has created an exciting new approach to figure drawing. Using his experience as an artist and a teacher, McMullan lucidly presents his new strategy, High-Focus Drawing, demonstrating his method with examples from master works as well as from student art. High-Focus Drawing is a melding of memory, common sense, heightened awareness of our own bodies, and curiosity to find what is unique in the model. In contrast to a mechanistic approach, where the artist isolates portions of the body, High-Focus Drawing asks the student to take in the entire figure at once, resulting in a drawing that embodies a strong sense of immediacy and energy. This approach produces lively, seamless figure drawings without construction lines. For students and artists at any level who are interested in exploring the possibilities of figure drawing this book provides both guidance and inspiration.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR “Taut, elegant . . . Black is a writer of great wisdom.”—Claire Messud, The Guardian (UK) Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. Augusta Edelman—Gus to her friends—is a painter, a wife, and not always the best judge of her own choices—one of them bad enough that she and her husband, Owen, have fled their longtime city home and its reminders of troubling events. Now, three years into their secluded country life, Gus works daily on the marriage she nearly lost, discovers new inspiration for her art, and contemplates the mysteries of a childhood tragedy. But this quiet, healing rhythm is forever shattered one hot July day when a stranger moves into the abandoned house next door and crosses more boundaries than just those between their lands. A fierce, honest, and moving portrait of a woman grappling with her fate, Life Drawing is a debut novel as beautiful and unsparing as the human heart. Praise for Life Drawing “The page-turning suspense of Robin Black’s novel comes from her beautiful, honest portrait of a marriage, of a life. . . . A novel of consequence, and a stunning one.”—San Francisco Chronicle “Gripping . . . the power of this story is how it illuminates, in utterly compelling detail, the complex give-and-take of a couple trying to save their marriage.”—O: The Oprah Magazine “Truly brilliant . . . [Black] is that rare writer whose gift for prose is matched by her mastery of the other elements that make a great novel. . . . [Her] psychological prowess and incisive observations lend an edge even to seemingly straightforward scenes.”—Chicago Tribune “Races to its resolution . . . Black’s writing is clear and direct [with] observations about the way people relate that resonate well after the book is closed.”—The New York Times Book Review
