Repn academy book in english

Hi all,
I have found on amazon the book I'm interestd in: Russian Repin Academy of Fine Arts: Drawing Advanced Course; unfortunately it seems that language is ONLY chinese. Can someone help me to identify a copy translated in english?

I saw training course at this link and it seems very detailed and professionally skilled, has someone experience in this type of approach on drawing?

Thank you!

Re: Repn academy book in english

Hi Frances,

A book on drawing by Vladimir Mogilevtsev, director of the Repin Academy, and published in both Russian and English is found here.

It may not be the specific title you are looking for, but a more recent publication. Hope this helps.

From the write up:

" The first English edition of the bestseller on academic drawing that is sold worldwide since 2007. Awarded Silver and Gold Medals by the Russian Academy of Arts in 2011, The 1st publication in the series "Fundamentals of Art" (two others are Fundamentals of Painting and Fundamentals of Composition). it is the first and only textbook on academic drawing that is officially approved and recommended by the Russian Academy of Arts. For several years this publication has become a very necessary source for studying academic drawing and is used as a reference book by art schools and academies worldwide. This well illustrated textbook is loaded with tables, images with anatomical casts, sketches and drawings by old masters that show a classical system for academic drawing while illustrating all stages of work of portrait and nude drawing. --- About Author: V. A. Mogilevtsev is a leading professor and a Head of the Department of Drawing at the Russian Academy of Arts (aka Repin Art Institute), where he teaches senior students since 1995. In 2011 Professor Mogilevtsev received Gold and Silver Medals from the Academy for his teaching achievements and for his books Fundamentals of Drawing and Academic Drawings & Sketches (ISBN: 978-5904957018). Recently two more textbooks in the series "Fundamentals of Art" have been released, Fundamentals of Painting (https://www.amazon.com/dp/5904957068) and Fundamentals of Composition. https://www.amazon.com/dp/5904957084"
