About the author (1981)

The great comic strip artist Burne Hogarth was born in New York in 1911. Best known as the illustrator of the long-running Tarzan comics, Hogarth was honored as the "Michelangelo of the comics" by the Society for the Study of the Comic Strip in France. Hogarth began drawing Tarzan in 1937, basing the strip on stories by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Many of the strips were published in 1977 under the title The Golden Age of Tarzan, 1939-42. In 1950, Hogarth retired Tarzan and spent the next seventeen years teaching. He helped found a number of art schools, including the School of Visual Arts and the Parsons School of Design, both in New York City. He published several instructional texts, including Dynamic Anatomy, Drawing the Human Head, and Dynamic Figure Drawing, and a sketchbook, Arcane Eye of Hogarth, in 1992. Hogarth died of a heart attack in Paris in 1996.
