Brancusi's Endless column ensemble : Târgu Jiu, Romania ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Endless Column Ensemble, by famed Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi (1876-1957), has been hailed as one of the great works of twentieth-century public art. Commissioned by the National League of Gorj Women to honour the soldiers who had defended the town of Targu Jiu against a German force in 1916, the tripartite ensemble, erected between 1937 and 1938, is composed of the Endless Column, a 30-metre-high column of zinc and brass-clad, cast-iron modules, and two stone monuments: the Table of Silence and Gate of the Kiss." "Over the years the elements took their toll on the sculpture, and although the Column's modules had been re-plated several times since its construction, by the 1990s it was in dire need of conservation. This illustrated volume celebrates the history of this extraordinary work of art and tells the story of its recent restoration, landscaping and presentation, supported in large part by the World Monuments Fund (WMF)."--BOOK JACKET

St George's, Bloomsbury : a Hawksmoor masterpiece restored by Kerry Downes( Book )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This fascinating book tells the story of the creation of Nicholas Hawksmoor's celebrated eighteenth-century London church, St George's, Bloomsbury, and its recent multimillion-dollar restoration, underwritten by the World Monuments Fund in Britain and the Paul Mellon Estate. Commissioned by Parliament in 1711 and completed in 173 1, the church, best known from its depiction in Hogarth's 1751 engraving,Gin Lane, has been hailed as a masterpiece of Late Baroque architecture and one of the finest churches in England built between the Reformation and the nineteenth century." "The renovation, completed in 2008, has restored the church as it was designed by Hawksmoor, re-establishing its original orientation,and reinstating the north gallery and the whimsical lions, unicorns, festoons, and crowns that originally graced its celebrated spire. The statues had been removed in 1871, having been declared "very doubtful ornaments". Horace Walpole once described the whole tower as "a masterpiece of absurdity"." "St George's, Bloomsbury is one of a series of books co-published by Scala and the World Monuments Fund(WMF), the foremost private organization dedicated to the preservation of cultural heritage around the globe through a comprehensive program of fieldwork, advocacy, training, and grant-making. Since its founding in 1965, WMF has worked to stem the loss of more than 430 irreplaceable sites in 83 countries."--BOOK JACKET
