Written by the American educator and sculptor Herbert George, this book is an essential guide to the masterpieces of sculpture. Richly illustrated, compelling and jargon-free, the publication was designed with the general public in mind.
It discovers and isolates the attributes, from the most physical to the most ephemeral, and motifs that sculptors use to create their art. The author analyses the general aspects of various classical and contemporary masterpieces, such as materials, schools, volumes, colours, textures, scales, movement and light. Herbert George invites us to observe and appreciate the three-dimensional object from an artist's perspective.
