This book was even better than brand new. I am looking forward to improving my skill using this book as recommended very highly by fellow artists and our teacher.


The Origin of Gesture

by EScribbler on Apr 6, 2012

A really interesting book, and actually as far as I know the origin of the concept of gesture drawing (or its fullest articulation), which is so important and fundamental. On the downside the book is very programmatic and I'm not sure who would have the patience and stamina to work through it step by step, but if you pick out the best bits there are definite diamonds in there.


Great reference book

Great info worth having for any library. I would recommend this book.


Legacy Instruction

by ASK4Quote on Jun 3, 2007

Nicholaides' wife, students and editors compiled this book after his death in 1938. Part of my intent in obtaining this book was to get a glimpse into the early decades of the 20th century in which he flourished. Before technology gave us computer aids, there was the artist and his/her vision and the medium. This book is written in clear language and assumes access to simple tools that should be available to most. Given the insights which recent advances in neuroscience have given us, it is apparent that Kimon Nicholaides was intuitively aware of mechanisms of perception that scientists have only recently proven. In plain English, he was an excellent instructor. The drawings were selected from his and from students' drawings. This gives the beginner an understanding of what to expect of herself.
