Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Framed in a lucid discussion of the intellectual issues surrounding the postmodern movement, the essays in this book re-examine the course of twentieth-century art through the work of twenty-five major sculptors. McEvilley masterfully traces the evolution of modern sculpture from the readymades of Marcel Duchamp to the anti-painting statements of the 1960s to the spiritualism and conceptualism of the 1980s and 1990s. This is a groundbreaking work in the field of art criticism and a fundamental text for anyone interested in the history of current art and culture.

Framed in a discussion of the intellectual issues surrounding the postmodern movement, lucid essays reexamine the course of 20th-century sculpture through the work of 25 major sculptors.
