Bernini : genius of the Baroque by Charles Avery( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and German and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A beautifully illustrated testament to this great Baroque sculptorCharles Avery. Gianlorenzo Bernini was one of the greatest artists of all time. World-famous for his uniquely powerful works of sculpture, he was also a virtuoso draftsman, a pioneering caricaturist, and a designer of gorgeous fountain displays. He even wrote plays. Bernini virtually created Baroque Rome. Without his contributions, we could not walk across the Ponte Sant'Angelo escorted by the angelic statuary that he designed for its balustrades. The Basilica of St. Peter would not have the sonorous crescendo of Bernini's bronze Baldacchino over St. Peter's tomb. We could not enjoy the huge splashing water display and vigorous drama of the figures on his Fountain of the Four Rivers in the Piazza Navona"

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 556 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."--Jacket

Gaudier-Brzeska : life and art by Evelyn Silber( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and German and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After a short, turbulent life in France, Germany and Britain, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska was killed in the trenches in 1915 at the age of twenty-three. A protege of Ezra Pound and a fellow champion of Vorticism, he was a member of the legendary pre-war London circle that included Wyndham Lewis, Jacob Epstein and Roger Fry, and by the time of his death he had already produced a body of work that established him as one of the key figures of twentieth-century sculpture." "A pioneering direct carver, his bold use of semi-abstract sculptural forms and organic dynamism were an acknowledged influence on Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. He was also a brilliant draughtsman and his succinct, candid drawings have been as sought after as his sculpture." "Gaudier-Brzeska: Life and Art is the first major study of his life and work. Based on extensive research and incorporating the first catalogue raisonne of his sculpture, it is accompanied by over 100 photographs taken specially for the book by David Finn."--Jacket
