This book came with a loaned art study unit on Mississippi artist Walter Anderson who used the 7 motifs in his work. As a teacher of intellectually gifted students, I found the book to be very clear and easy to share with my students as I’m not an artist! Many of my students are artistic and creative so the 7 motifs are an excellent method for them to add to projects and their own creative expression.

Historically important
Reviewed in the United States on November 19, 2013
It was not what I expected but it is a historic book that influence Mexican artists after the revolution. An important book and one I will refer to as I consider motifs in contemporary and modern Mexican paintings and decorative arts.

I bought this out-of-print book originally when I was studying Walter Anderson. The basics of his art work is taught in this book. He studied the primitive designs of Greek, Aztec, African, etc. pottery and art and developed a modern approach to old design techniques like the ones taught by Adolfo Best-Maugard. It is a very valuable instruction book for the beginner or the historian. It appears simple but is very detailed in the basic knowledge of design.

I used to have a copy of this book, but it walked with somebody. Best-Maugard teaches the reader to combine basic marks to make nice drawings of flowers, mountains, animals, and lots of other pretty things.Starting to draw is frustrating because few of start out making wonderful compositions. His method produces immediate results. This book would be great for classes. I consider it more of a design book than a fine art book, but it can cetainly inspire one to go on and produce fine art.I am getting another copy of it because I know there are projects in it for me to further develop my skills. And I started using it eight years ago.
