Walter Farrington Moses (1874-1947) was an American artist known principally for his landscape paintings. Here, he showcases his knowledge of the human form in different poses and illustrates said form in fine detail. Moses was also an instructor at the Fashion School of Illustrating in Chicago and was the director of the California Art Club in 1922. Scarce in the trade, a handsome edition to any science library.
