A history of an art form in all its possible manifestations
Ranging from ancient to contemporary sculpture,
this book is the first study of the history of sculpture to present
such an original and comprehensive approach. Taking the sculptures out
of the museum context (and thus off of their proverbial pedestals), this
volume presents a completely new view which affords enlightening
comparisons between eras and genres. This remarkable work is
indispensable for art lovers of all tastes and disciplines.
