The Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Collection is renowned as one of the finest collections of Modern and contemporary sculpture in the world. Remarkable for its uniformly high level of quality as well as the depth of its representation of key artists, the collection spans more than a century, from the pioneering work of Paul Gauguin, Auguste Rodin, and Medardo Rosso late in the nineteenth century to contemporary developments reflected in works by Magdalena Abakanowicz, Tony Cragg, Claes Oldenburg, and Richard Serra, among others.
Lavishly illustrated in this volume are 136 works by fifty-eight artists, a selection that surveys many of the most important sculptural developments of the past one hundred years. In no other historical period have the definitions of sculpture been so dramatically challenged and expanded. The Nasher Collection is a celebration of the creative energies behind this Modernist tradition. Particularly notable is the presentation in depth of such masters as Alexander Calder, Raymond Duchamp-Villon, Alberto Giacometti, Henri Matisse, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, and David Smith; groupings of multiple works allow a broad picture of each artist's achievement.
