One of the premier sculptors of her generation in the Northwest, Hilda Morris (1911-1993) lived her artistic life in the center of the region's circle of avant-garde painters, sculptors, poets, and musicians. This is the first book to document her half-century-long career and presents Morris's highly individual abstract sculptures against the backdrop of artistic developments during the second half of the twentieth century. A part of the abstract expressionist movement, Morris's vigorous, gestural sculptures inspired by mythological and universal symbols were instrumental in introducing a rigorous, expansive thinking about abstraction to the Pacific Northwest community. As an account of her life and the first complete survey of her entire oeuvre - sculpture, painting, and drawing - this volume will be essential to an understanding of the period.

About the Author:

Bruce Guenther, the Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Portland Art Museum, has organized and contributed to numerous international exhibitions of contemporary art. Dr. Susan Fillen-Yeh has published widely on American art and is the editor and author of Dandies: Fashion and Finesse in Art and Culture (2001). Sculptor David Curt Morris is based in New York, exhibits nationally, and has executed numerous public commissions. He is the son of Hilda and Carl Morris and serves as director and trustee for the Carl and Hilda Morris Foundation.

Review:

"Sculptor Morris might be little known, but this retrospective exhibition catalog proves that there is much to be studied in her 50-year career. Hilda Morris is a solid resource for general audiences, sculpture aficionados, and art historians alike. Recommended."―Choice
