Public Sculpture of Britain #5: Public Sculpture of Glasgowby Ray Mckenzie
Synopses & Reviews
Glasgow is notable as being one of the few British cities to have resisted artistic centralization based in London. Only in Glasgow were there significant local workshops, often family-based, training dynasties of native sculptors. Public Sculpture of Glasgow includes work by some of the most influential British and continental sculptors during the last 200 years including John Flaxman, John Gibson, J.H. Foley and Carlo Marochetti. Ray McKenzie has in this volume for the first time demonstrated the importance of Glasgow's architectural sculpture and explained its function with a wealth superbly arranged and carefully marshalled detail. Joint-winner of the 2002 Saltire Society Scottish Research Book of the Year.
