New Artistic Anatomy

Book release

Available now on

It’s here! The first English translation of Dr. Paul Richer’s marvelous text on Female Morphology, translated and edited by Atelier instructor Allana Benham, is now available. This pivotal text describes the nature of variations within the female figure and helps artists to identify specific anatomical features that create a person’s physical character. A valuable resource for artists working in all media.

“This book, once rare and available in only a few libraries, is happily now available in Allana M. Benham’s English translation from Dr. Richer’s original French edition. This new English edition presents Richer’s brilliant and unique analyses of female form, illustrated with Richer’s own line drawings and beautiful halftone drawings. This definitive reference belongs in the library of every figurative artist.”
