This  book  is  an  attempt  to  teach  beginning  students  how  to  draw.  Starting  out  with 
intuition  and  vision,  Harold  Speed  explains  line  and  mass  drawing,  and  how 
rhythm  is  conveyed  in  art  by  means  of  balance  and  proportion.  Everything  is 
pulled  together  in  a  chapter  on  portrait  drawing,  before  the  author  gives  hints  on 
materials  and  procedure.  This  manual  was  written  in  1913,  but  because  of  the 
intelligent  combination  of  useful  advice  and  sensitive  reflection  on  the  nature  and 
meaning  of  artistic  practice,  it  has  been  considered  a  valuable  resource  for  artists.
