Modelling and Sculpture

Product description

In the Preface the author, Albert Toft, writes that "innumerable books on almost every conceivable phase of Art have been published in recent years, and it may be asked why I, a sculptor by profession, have chosen to tread the thorny path of literature and add to their number". He also says "I have endeavoured, as plainly and directly as possible, to place before him the result of many years' practical experience, and to show him how the knowledge acquired, stage by stage, of the modeller's and sculptor's art can be utilised; for I believe that this experience will be helpful to all those students who have an honest and whole-hearted desire to succeed in their profession, which has so many famous names on its roll of honour".

There are 118 black and white illustrations and diagrams in this book.

Published 1921.
Hardback. The front board is cracked and the bottom edge of the spine is frayed. Otherwise this book is in good condition given its age.
