The Male and Female Figure in Motion: 60 Classic Photographic Sequences (Dover Anatomy for Artists)
by Eadweard Muybridge
Publisher's Description
Muybridge, well-known for his classic studies of motion, first published his Animal Locomotion series in 1887. From the 781 published plates, each a different sequence of 12 photographs depicting animals and humans in motion, subscribers were given their choice of 100 at a price of $100. He was able to sell 450 copies. This current Dover volume reproduces 60 of those sequences that show the nude or semi-nude human body in motion. It includes pictures demonstrating the body's posture during the various activities of work and play, along with the daily physical routines of walking, climbing, bending, and sitting.
