Biography:

Frank L. Porcu is a sculptor, anatomist, and painter who earned a B.F.A. from Pratt Institute and an M.F.A. from the New York Academy of Art. He has devoted the last seventeen years to the study of the human form, based on the truth of human and quadrupedal dissection. His research in the theories of “anatomical form-making” and its historical usages has provided him with a platform to teach to artists and physicians a “lost philosophy” dealing with the scientific construction of form.

The anatomy text he is authoring is in manuscript form, and is being updated weekly, due to the great lessons and explanations demanded of him by his ambitious students.

Mr. Porcu teaches anatomy, drawing, and sculpture at The Art Students League of New York, where he has recently brought back the appropriate study of the “Antique,” with the design and erection of the second floor Antique Cast Wall. He also lectures on stereoscopic anatomy at Columbia University, College of Physicians and Surgeons.
