  • This short pictorial guide for drawing the human figure was published in the 1820s by Johann Heinrich Ramberg (1763-1840), one of the most popular illustrators in Germany. Trained in England under the patronage of George III, Ramberg worked in a variety of media but his strength was in linework. This compendium of variously-dated plates, including studies of heads, limbs, and bodies in multiple views, carries the lengthy title of "Anweisung zum Zeichnen der menschlichen Gestalt besonders für Dilettanten brauchbar, welche sich eine practische Kenntniß der Zeichnenkunst zu verschaffen wünschen." The copy digitized here is in the collection of the UW-Madison, Kohler Art Library.
