This book was done as a 90th birthday present for my teacher Ann D. Schuler.It contains over 250 pages of her drawings spanning over 40 years. The drawings range from quick gesture sketches to more finished drawings of 20 minutes .They were done in class at her school and were done for the love of drawing and the figure. Alas, Ann is no longer with us , so this is now a memorial to a great artist and lady.Anyone who loves fine drawings in the style of the old masters should take a look as there is nothing like this book anywhere. Another book was done by Ann's daughter . It contains more drawings with captions and drawings used for the paintings as well as the oil paintings they were used for. It can be ordered from the Schuler School of fine Arts or it might be found here on blurb. It was my privilege to have been her student and friend and to be able to select from over 400 drawings of the thousands she did to compile this book. Goodbye Ann you will be missed but you will live on in your work.
