The Art Manuals Unwrapped Podcast

Art Manuals Unwrapped is a podcast that currently features 8 episodes recorded during 2020. Hosts Iyabo Oba and Priscilla Wrightson "unpack the ideas and thoughts of different art manual creators and their unique contributions to the Western European art scene," concentrating on the methods artists and art instructors have used to teach people how to draw and paint. For example, Episode 5 is about Flemish physician and anatomist Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564), who created the art manual De Humani Corporis Fabrica Libri Septem (On the Fabric of the Human Body). In Episode 7, listeners can learn about J.D. Harding (1798-1863), a British artist who gave lessons to the famous art critic John Ruskin and created the manual Elementary Art; Or, The Use of the Lead Pencil Advocated and Explained. Images selected from the manuals are on view on the Art Manuals Unwrapped Instagram (@artmanualsunwrapped).
