Sherry Camhy has published Robert Beverly Hale Lecture Notes. The hardcover volume contains one hundred unedited pages from the sketchbook Camhy created as Hale’s afternoon class monitor in 1980. The pages include detailed notations of Hale’s anatomy lectures, her own studies of his demonstration diagrams, and additional anatomy information.
“Robert Beverly Hale’s lectures were not just about anatomy. They were interspersed with his insights into art and life, which he expressed through humorous asides and inspiring recitations of poetry,” Camhy explains. Also included are snapshots of Hale and his drawings. The book is for anyone interested in understanding more about one of the Art Students League’s most influential anatomists.
On November 18 at 12:30 pm in the Art Students League’s Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery, Camhy will be giving a free talk and signing copies of her book. If you are unable to attend, please email her your experiences with and memories of Robert Beverly Hale: firstname.lastname@example.org.
