Bronze Exhibition Catalogue
"The lavishly illustrated catalog for a London exhibition on the history of bronze as an artistic medium — "Bronze" (Royal Academy of Arts)— may well be the most beautiful book published anywhere in the world this year. Impeccable essays by curator David Ekserdjian and others make for enjoyable reading, but the breathtaking photography and creative layout of more than 150 color plates really make this volume sparkle." The Wall Street Journal.
This sumptuous catalogue examines bronze's earliest beginnings in North Africa, the Middle East and China as it transcended tools and weaponry to become a medium of fine-art. Expert authors chart the virtuousity of artists in ancient Greece and Rome; developments in Asia and Africa; bronze's great flowering in the European Renaissance and its use in the modern era by artists such as Rodin, Picasso, Brancusi and Bourgeois.
A unique testament to the works of art that one medium has inspired, Bronze contains lavish colour plates of over 150 masterworks arranged chronologically to take the reader on a voyage through time, tracing the work of sculptors, casters and chasers through the centuries.
This enthralling book is 30 x 24.5cm, 248 pages, 260 illustrations.
