1963 Painting Portraits ~ Hardcover Book w/ Dustjacket ~ Excellent Condition.
This is a fantastic book written by Helen Olsen with photographs by George Olsen. It was published in 1963 by Gramercy Publishing Co., New York.
This hardcover book has 112 pages and appears to have been minimally read. The pages are crisp and clean, but the dustjacket shows significant, age-related foxing and toning.
There are multiple "How to" instructions for "capturing likeness and personality."
The Table of Contents includes: Painting and Personality, The Architecture of the Face, Posing and Composing, Getting it Down on Paper, The Tools for the Job, The Qualities of Color, Painting a Portrait with a Palette Knife, Color Reproductions, Painting the Portraits of Children and Painting the Portraits of Adults.
A great resource book for any artist.
