7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"David Finn presents a wealth of views of the male and female nude in sculpture, from ancient times to the twentieth century, and from a number of cultures throughout the world. Among the artists whose works are illustrated are Michelangelo, Auguste Rodin, Aristide Maillol, and Henry Moore: also included are masterworks by unknown or little-known artists whose astonishing work will bring both wonder and surprise. The photographs permit us to see something of the sculptor's creative process, as well as the qualities of presence, texture, and detail that give the finest sculpture its beauty and majesty. Accompanying the photographs is an illuminating essay by critic Vicki Goldberg, discussing how we look at sculpture and our various responses to the most tactile of the visual arts."--BOOK JACKET
