Well before Cubism, sculptors like Antoine Bourdelle, who was Rodin's assistant, and Medardo Rosso had already broken away from classic concepts of space and form. Their stimulus was the discovery of archaic and prehistoric art. After reassessing the roots of modern sculpture starting with Rodin, Hammacher shows how painter-sculptors Modigliani, Nolde, Gauguin and Picasso found inspiration in African, South Pacific and other more ancient civilizations. Elie Nadelman and Jacob Epstein, operating within the magnetic field of Cubism, forged individual styles. Hammacher's personal, engrossing narrative is peppered with shrewd judgments. He shows how a sense of doom links Moore, Hepworth, Arp and Giacometti in their work done between the two world wars. Originally published in 1969 as The Evolution of Modern Sculpture and long out of print, this marvelous survey turns the history of modern sculpture into high drama. Many of the 468 plates are exceptionally beautiful. A newly added chapter covers developments since 1960, from Robert Morris's minimalist labyrinth to Niki de Saint Phalle's fantastical architectural parks.
