Here is an important and lavishly beautiful new study of the discovery, appreciation, recognition and selection of fine bronze statuary created during the 19th and early 20th centuries. This period was an era of great social and cultural change in which bronze sculpture managed to capture the evolving spirit of romance, turbulence and excitement. Art Bronzes presents over 1,100 illustrations, 200 in full color, and many pages of carefully researched text with relevant marks, inscriptions, artist signatures, dates, and foundry stamps. Over 450 well-and lesser-known artists in Romantic, Animal, Oriental, Frontier, Victorian, and Exotic styles working in Europe, Asia and the Americas are represented. Dealers, collectors, artists, and art historians all will find inspiration and important, newly discovered information in Art Bronzes.

Michael Forrest is an art historian, author, antiques dealer and frequent contributor to publications in America and Europe.From Library Journal:
A typologically arranged visual survey of bronzes of the 19th and early 20th centuries, this work offers a slight text in each of the ten chapters but extended captions for many of the 1100 works by 380 artists. More extensive works (e.g., Harold Berman's Bronzes, Sculptors & Founders 1800-1930 ) and more specialized titles on these collectible works are available, but this is a good one-volume survey of the subject, written primarily to give the collector quick visual reference. The biographies are very brief, the section of marks more so, and the illustrations good, bad, and ugly. An expensive book collectors will request.Jack Perry Brown, Ryerson & Burnham Lib., Art Inst. of Chicago
