Abstract:

"One of the leading figures in late twentieth-century art, Lee Bontecou (b. 1931) became widely known for her sculptures in welded steel and canvas, as well as epoxy and plastic, from the 1960s and 1970s. These powerful and original objects, which have been both critically acclaimed and actively collected, incorporate a variety of figurative, organic, and mechanistic references, suggesting states of transformation between the natural and the man-made, order and chaos, delicacy and ferocity." "This monograph presents reproductions of more than fifty sculptures and one hundred drawings, including her celebrated early works as well as later pieces that are little known and have never been publicly exhibited or published. Along with original essays by Elizabeth A. T. Smith, Robert Storr, Mona Hadler, and Donna De Salvo, this volume also includes a reprint of Donald Judd's influential 1965 Arts Magazine article on Bontecou."--BOOK JACKET.
