The Training of the Memory in Art and the Education of the Artist (Paperback)
This is a classic guide to training your memory for the purpose of producing art. It aims to teach the reader how to memorise things like form and colour composition so that they may draw and paint from memory alone. This fantastic guide is highly recommended for all artists, and it would make for a worthy addition to allied collections. Contents include: "The Training of the Memory in Art", "Memory of Form", "Memory for Colour", "Advanced Study - Practical", "Applications", "A Survey of Art Teaching", "Epilogue", "Letters to a Young Professor", "Drawing and Painting", "Notes on Illustrations", etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
