Fletcher Benton : an American artist( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Towering large-scale painted steel forms that evoke grids, crystals, and the structural practicality of architecture, Fletcher Benton's sculptures can hold their own "amid the glass and steel towers of the contemporary city" while being equally compatible with the vineyards and fields where they are also often sited. His work has garnered attention and commissions from museums and collectors from California to Italy. In this career monograph, Benton's work is discussed in three different essays, each honing in on a specific period in his career. It is the first inclusive and thorough examination of this major American sculptor and how his work fits into the art timeline of the twentieth century
