About this title


Covering the work of such artists as Harriet Frishmuth, Paul Manship, and Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, this excellently done reference volume provides a comprehensive treatment of important figurative sculpture. Color and b&w photographs are largely of works in public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Includes biographical material on each artist. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

From Library Journal:

Conner and Rosenkranz here intend to showcase the smaller studio works of 20 American sculptors, once widely known for larger pieces commissioned for world's fairs, expositions, etc., whose large public works obscured their studio pieces or whose reputations have simply diminished over time. They largely succeed in reacquainting us with these sculptors. The photography of the sculptures, some in color, is outstanding and essential for placing both the artists and their work within an American tradition of sculpture purchased for the home environment. Showing the shift in scale from conceptions of grandeur to service on a tabletop also demonstrates the creative range of these artists. Recommended for larger academic, museum, and public libraries.
