Dust jacket notes: "Alexander Archipenko (1887-1964) was the first twentieth-century sculptor to recognize form as illusion and to realize in his art the esthetic value of the void. Archipenko's rich artistic achievement, as it evolved during his long and productive career in Paris, Nice, and Berlin from 1908 to 1923 and in the United States for the next four decades, is elegantly illustrated and fully documented in this superb volume. A unique and valuable feature is that the majority of the sculptures represented are depicted in multiple views, providing a rare opportunity for readers to study these works 'in the round.' To demonstrate Archipenko's remarkable use of diverse materials, the 54 sculptures reproduced here include works in painted plaster, terra cotta, carved stone, marble, polished bronze, polychromed bronze, silver, gold, and chrome. The range of Archipenko's creativity is also revealed in 52 works on paper executed in pastel, colored pencil, crayon, collage, ink, drypoint, lithography, and silk screen. Donald Karshan's outstanding collection includes important examples of Archipenko's major works and extends from his earliest sculpture in bronze, Adam and Eve of 1908, to his last, King Solomon of 1963, and from a cubist drawing of 1911 to his final lithographs of 1963. Thorough documentation, including provenance, exhibition history, and literature, is given for each object. Also provided are a summary of Archipenko's innovations, a biographical chronology, and a selective bibliography. This incomparable photographic record of Archipenko's art, including 162 plates of which 42 are in full color, is a must for anyone interested in the history of modern sculpture."
