Barbara Chase-Riboud, sculptor by Peter Selz( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barbara Chase-Riboud first captured the attention of the art world in the 1970s with elegant, powerful sculptures in which she merged the hardness of bronze with the lush softness of woven silk and wool. Her work is represented in major surveys of Western art and in important private and public collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. This book presents the first comprehensive overview of the sculptures and drawings of this talented artist. Two eminent art historians join forces to provide a critical evaluation of Chase-Riboud's thirty years of artistic creativity."--Jacket
