This volume features 92 masterpieces of sculpture from the Renaissance through the nineteenth century. These works include a wide range of media—marble, bronze, stucco, wood, terracotta, and ivory—and scale, from a tiny, fantastically decorated oil lamp to Antonio Canova’s eight-foot-tall Perseus with the Head of Medusa. Works by the great European sculptors and artists—including della Robbia, Giambologna, Bernini, Girardon, Pigalle, Houdon, Thorvaldsen, Messerschmidt, Degas, and Rodin—are presented and illustrated. Ian Wardropper’s authoritative discussion incorporates information from recent conservation studies and the latest scholarly research, and provides for the first time an overview of the Metropolitan’s world- renowned sculpture collection.
