Self-trained Italian sculptor Giacomo Manzù, the son of a Bergamo shoemaker, was best known for his bronze doors for the Salzburg Cathedral, and the Doors of Death for St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. The story of the creation of the doors for St. Peter's is included in An Artist and the Pope. Manzù struggled after losing his faith, but with the encouragement of Pope John XXIII, completed the commission. Author Curtis Bill Pepper took the artist's recollections of his meetings and dialogues with the Pope and wove them into a moving journalist's narrative.--Cf. Edward R. DeZurko, The Georgia Review, v. 23, no. 2, Summer 1969, p. 264-266

Botero. Paintings and works on paper. 2 vols by Fernando Botero( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether it's the Ringling Brothers or Cirque du Soleil, the circus is a universal tradition, bringing people together in the name of amusement and festivity. The same is true for bullfight, a tradition celebrated through history in virtually every Spanish speaking nation in the world. In these rich assemblages luxuriously presented in a luscious lucite slipcase with the artist's renowned signature silkscreened on the outside of the box, the reader will find an assemblage of the artist's work on the only two theme topics that offer enough variety and expanse to be able to be offered as the subject of an individual book and have never before been published (each book) as a complete collection on the subject. Botero's constant exploration of volume has made his artworks the most well-known by the widest general public in the world. Following in the tradition of great painters inspired by the circus - Renoir, Seurat, Lautrec, Picasso, Chagall, Leger, and Calder, among others - Botero explores light, colour, style, and space with a poignancy that highlights through the extravagant proportion of his figures the exceptional beauty of the human body.0These are all creations that are instantly recognisable as the work of a master
