Description:

Berkeley. 2008. University Of California Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. With Essays by Victoria Steele and Marc Treib and Contributions by Claudine Dixon and Allegra Pesenti. 192 pages. February 2008. hardcover. ISBN: 9780943739335. inventory # 36314. FROM THE PUBLISHER - For nearly thirty years, starting in the 1960s, Franklin D. Murphy was a dominant figure in the cultural development of Los Angeles. As chancellor of UCLA and later as chief executive of the Times Mirror company, Murphy channeled more than a billion dollars into the city’s universities, museums, concert halls, and libraries. The Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden, one of his landmark projects, is also one of the UCLA campus’s great treasures. Standing as a model for sculpture gardens internationally since its dedication in 1967, the Murphy Garden features seventy-two important modern and contemporary sculptures in a five-acre site designed by landscape architect Ralph Cornell. This fully-illustrated catalog documents the entire Murphy Garden collection and provides a scholarly entry for each artist–a sampling of which includes Deborah Butterfield, Alexander Calder, Henri Matisse, Joan Miró, Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi, Auguste Rodin, and David Smith. Three essays–by Victoria Steele, Cynthia Burlingham, and Marc Treib– focus respectively on the role of Franklin Murphy in the garden’s planning and execution, the acquisition of the sculptures, and the garden’s significance within the history of sculpture garden design. Cynthia Burlingham has been director of the UCLA Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts since 2004 and deputy director of collections at the Hammer Museum since 1999. Her research focuses primarily on the history of European prints from the sixteenth through the twentieth century, with additional focus on the development of visual culture and printed books. Recent publications include The French Renaissance in Prints (1995); Picturing Childhood: Illustrated Children’s Books from University of California Collections (1997); The World from Here: Treasures of the Great Libraries of Los Angeles (2001); The Eunice and Hal David Collections of Nineteenth-and Twentieth-Century Works on Paper (2004), and Masters of American Comics (2006). Victoria Steele heads the Department of Special Collections in the Charles E. Young Research Library at UCLA, where she created and also serves as director of the Center for Primary Research and Training. Coauthor of an award-winning book on library development and a former Fulbright Fellow to the United Kingdom, she holds a doctorate in art history and writes about both special collections and art topics. Marc Treib is professor of architecture at the University of California, Berkeley; a practicing designer; and a frequent contributor to architecture, landscape, and design journals.He has held Fulbright, Guggenheim, and Japan Foundation fellowships, as well as an advanced design fellowship at the American Academy in Rome. Recent publications include Noguchi in Paris: The Unesco Garden (2003); Thomas Church, Landscape Architect: Designing a Modern California Landscape (2004); The Donnell and Eckbo Gardens: Modern California Masterworks (2005); and Settings and Stray Paths: Writings on Landscape Architecture (2005). .
