In The Practice and Science of Drawing, Harold Speed approaches this dynamic aspect of drawing and painting from many different points of view. He plays the historical against the scientific, theory against precise artistic definition. He begins with a sudy of line drawing and mass drawing, the two basic approaches the artist needs to learn. Further sections carry the artistic vision through unity and visual memory, materials and procedures. Throughout Speed combines historical backgrounds, dynamic aspects which each technique brings to a work of art, and specific exercises through which the young draughtsman may begin his training. Althogh not a technique book in the strict sense of the term, The Practice and Science of Drawing brings to the beginner a clear statement of the principles that he will have to develop and their importance in creating a work of art. Ninety-three plates and diagrams, masterfully selected, reinforce Speed's always clear presentation.
