Male IEU 05.04.16 Flesh and Bone

Richard Dickson led this meeting of the Unit.

Flesh and Bone.
In 1962 critic Stephen Spender wrote that Henry Moore and Francis Bacon had no equals in creating images of the human form. It can be seen when you view their work that Moore drew and sculpted bone, form and structure and Bacon painted flesh. Common to both was the re-invention of the human form.

As both these artists were inspired by Greco-Roman statues we started with some short poses based on these works for the warm up. During longer classically based poses the group were then challenged to observe and interpret the model examining either the flesh or the bone and form.
