Editorial Reviews

Review


"A grand and inclusive series of truly global dimensions....Sumptuous reproductions and dynamic syntheses of artistic and historical themes."--Booklist


"Superb....Highly informative....The design is beautifully clear, the text jargon-free and never less than readable."--The Guardian


"Overall, a superlative text....Far reaching and well-read."--David J. Getsy, Northwestern University


"I enjoyed the international representation, the color plates, and the discussions--both the excerpts and the chapters. This book helped me to contextualize contemporary sculpture within other world events and art genres."--Aimee Bott, Ball State University

Format: Paperback
I checked out this book from the public library and read it twice before I started learning sculpture. Now I finally bought it and I'm still reading it. It's a wonderful book a have to get inspired from the masterpieces. Know the trends and thoughts in the sculpture field. Helps you create artworks from a border point of view, also improve the criticism knowledge.

The illustrations in this volume are superb and the text readily helps you follow the trends and fashions in modern sculpture. Basically the book gave me the next step past recognizing Calders and Moores and has inspired many a google search since then. Highly recommended for the non-expert.

This was my textbook for an art history class about the first half of modern art, emphasis on sculpture. I am a fan of these little books. Easy to read, lots of pictures, well laid out and divided. My professor liked this book as well, diverse artists and regions.
