Synopsis: The Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln houses one of America’s finest collections of twentieth-century sculpture. In addition to the major art historical landmarks that reflect the achievements of more than a century of collecting by the Nebraska Art Association and the University of Nebraska, the gallery has recently added monumental sculptures that provide a more comprehensive representation of artists currently contributing to the medium. Some of the most intriguing and influential pieces in the collection are represented in this volume. An introductory essay by David Cateforis provides a historical perspective on the development of sculpture as a medium. Essays by the current director, Janice Driesbach, as well as one by the former director, Norman A. Geske, provide thorough documentation of the development of the collection. The curator of the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, Daniel A. Siedell, is the primary contributing essayist. All of the 90 pieces selected from more than 350 works in the collection are presented here in full color, each accompanied by a brief discussion of the artist and his or her work by leading scholars in the field as well as authorities on the collection. The essays examine the works of sculptors represented in the Sheldon's collection, including Rodin, Calder, Duchamp, Barlach, Brancusi, and Moore, and present a concise yet comprehensive overview of pertinent scholarship that will be of value to both students and experts in the field. For more information about the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, visit http://www.sheldonartgallery.org/
