About this title


148 color plates, 57 BW figures. Selected for their special qualities as individual works of art, the sculptures reproduced also provide a visual history of western sculpture from the powerful stone images of Romanesque cathedrals to the kinetic, minimal, and super-realistic work of the 1970s. Following a stimulating introduction on the nature of sculpture, its techniques, and the role of color, Professor Hibbard provides a brief survey of each major period: The Middle Ages, Renaissance and Mannerism, Baroque to Romantic, and from Rodin to the present. Detailed notes to the plates supply additional information on individual sculptures and the artists who created them.
