American Sculpture in the Metropolitan Museum of Art: A catalogue of works by artists born before 1865
Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1999 - Sculpture - 788 pages
This publication, the first of two volumes, presents a definitive new catalogue of the Metropolitan Museum's distinguished collection of American sculpture. The Museum's holdings accurately document the history of American sculpture and its development as a profession, from the artists who lived in Italy and carved in marble and those who studied in Paris and cast in bronze, to those who worked only in the U.S. and were pioneers in the techniques of their arts. It begins with an introduction to the history of the collection, and includes a summary biography of each of the 61 sculptors. The entries for each of the 198 objects incorporate the most up-to-date scholarship as well as documentation from the archival material at the Museum. Contains 227 illustrations, 29 of which are in color.
