Man as Hero: The Human Figure in Western Art
By Pierce Rice

A seminal study by a superb teacher, critic, painter, and founder of Classical America, Rice’s book underscores the central importance of the human figure—in all its various types, poses, and characters—in the mainstream tradition of Western painting and sculpture. Lauded by Tom Wolfe, this book is a gem in the literature of classical art.
