From Library Journal
French sculptor Carpeaux is perhaps best known, on the one hand, for his joyously erotic group of "The Dance" done for the Paris Opera in the second half of the 1860s and, on the other hand, for the powerfully anguished group of "Ugolino and His Sons," completed in 1861. These and the other works that make up his richly complex oeuvre are discussed in Wagner's monograph, the most substantial and approachable treatment in many decades of the artist's work, life, and his social, political, and cultural milieu. Recommended for academic art history collections as well as for museum libraries. Jeffrey Weidman, Oberlin Coll. Libs., Ohio
