In 1683 Gerard Audran published a work entitled "Les Proportions du corps humain mesures sur les plus belles figures de l'antiquite." The illustrations are of the most famous antique sculptures with careful measurements of each. This book reviews that work from the perspective of his contemporaries and subsequent commentators and translates his words into English as well as reprinting his original plates for the modern student, and providing some additional illustrations which help you to enjoy the plates on proportion.
