Product description

50 Sculptures You Should Know
Isabel Kuhl, Klaus Reichold, Kristina Lowis, Christiane Weidemann
Prestel, Munich, Berlin, London, New York, 2009.
Soft-bound; 200 x 245 mm; 157 pages. No dust jacket. Profusely illustrated.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound and tight. There is slight bumping of the edges of the covers, and some slight marking on the covers.
For centuries artists have been expressing their ideas in three-dimensional works that reflect historical eras, etc. Starting from ancient times and continuing through the Classical, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Romantic, and Modern periods, this collection introduces readers to the artists and works that make sculpture such an exciting medium to explore. Among the artists included in the book are Michelangelo, Bernini, Rodin, Duchamp, Giacometti, Calder, Moore, Beuys, de Saint Phalle, and Bourgeois. From the Madonna of Essen, the oldest known sculpture of the Virgin Mary, to the sinuous metal sheets that make up Richard Serra's Matter of Time, each work is presented in spreads that offer beautiful photographs, biographical profiles of the artists, historical context, and anecdotal information. Broader texts describe various eras and styles as the book moves chronologically toward the present day.
