Synopsis: Written with his co-operation and access to his studio, this is a survey of the achievements of the American metal artist and sculptor, Albert Paley. It provides insights into his working methods and a detailed record of his career. Paley's most famous commission, the eight-foot portal gates of the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Instutition in Washington, DC, unveiled in 1974, took him and an assistant a year to complete, and since then he has made architectural sculptures for museums, organization and private clients all over the world. The art historian, Edward Lucie-Smith, discusses the significance and diversity of Paley's achievements, exploring how, like that of so many American artists, his work crosses the boundaries that separate art from craft. The book's illustrations reproduce not only Paley's major works, but also preliminary drawings.
