From Publishers Weekly:

Spanish realist painter-sculptor Antonio Lopez Garcia, born in 1936, taps the secrets latent in everyday scenes or objects--a backyard, a subway, a woman in a bathtub, a factory. An artist of many moods and styles, he depicts photorealistic street scenes that thrust the viewer into their sweeping perspectives; nighttime vistas shot through with magic and poetry; plaster reliefs that hark back to Greek friezes. His bold wooden full-length sculptures of a nude man and woman with quizzical expressions seem metaphors for human existence. In this lavish monograph, Madrid art critic Serraller explores "the flow of symbols, allegories and situations" in Lopez Garcia's work, while Sullivan, art professor at New York University, assesses the emotional impact of his sculpture. In an interview, Brenson, art critic for the New York Times , draws out Lopez Garcia on his working methods and the influence of Picasso and Dali on his outlook.

Book Description Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York, 1990. Cloth in Dust Jacket. Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. 360pp, profusely illustrated in color and b&w. With a biography, exhibition history and bibliography. "A forerunner of the realist movement centered in Madrid, Antonio Lopez Garcia's work is among the most personal and intense to have appeared in post-war Spain. This book is the first to present all of his known work, and offers the most complete examination of his achievement to date". A handsome example of the elusive, massive first monograph on the renowned Spanish Impressionist painter and sculptor Antonio Lopez Garcia showing some light brown speckling across the top edge of the textblock as well as some pulling at the hinges - as is typical with this title owing to the weight of the binding. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase. Artist Monograph. Seller Inventory # 024879
