The World as Sculpture
by James Hall
From the Renaissance onwards, sculpture was the poor relation of the visual arts. Not only was it considered more pagan and primitive than painting, its practitioners were assumed to be manual labourers rather than creative geniuses. Yet this has changed, and this book discusses why.
This vivid, highly entertaining guide, illustrated throughout, packed with fascinating characters, illuminating examples and heated arguments, seeks to understand the growing importance of sculpture as art and is essential reading for anyone interested in the arts. "From the Trade Paperback edition."
