About this title


This monograph presents the best works of contemporary sculptor Bruno Lucchesi. The author summarizes Lucchesi's life and career, and analyzes the stylistic development of his work, which seems to encompass several centuries of Western sculpture design.

From Publishers Weekly:

Through the 35 years of his career, Lucchesi's sculptures have ranged from the sacred to the profane. At the time he was doing Crucified Christ and Angels for a church in Italy, he was also turning out terra-cotta or bronze reliefs depicting such mundane scenes as paunchy men in a Turkish bath or women in a public restroom. Born near Pisa but based in the U.S. since the late 1950s, Lucchesi is a sculptor possessed of tremendous sympathy and admiration for women, as shown in wonderful pieces such as Nursing Mother , After Shoping and Pregnant . In treating classical themes, he adds a personal, down-to-earth twist, with results that are either banal or novel, depending on one's taste. His shoppers, commuters and bathers owe a debt to Daumier. Finn's probing photographs complement a short yet helpful text by Merriam, author of A Grace of Sense: The Sculpture of Joan Sovern.
