"This volume, published on the occasion of a major exhibition organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, is the first comprehensive study of Westermann's sculptures. It comprises the full exhibition catalogue and a catalogue raisonne of Westermann's sculptures and other objects. Encompassing the vast range of the artist's work, from his early constructions of the mid-1950s to his final sculptures of the early 1980s, this book places Westermann's art in the context of his wartime service, his personal experiences, and the politics of his time. The resulting portrait reveals as never before the ideas behind Westermann's unique assemblages."--Jacket
H.C. Westermann at war : art and manhood in cold war America by David McCarthy( Book )

"Drawing extensively upon archival materials, oral histories, popular culture, previously unpublished correspondence and drawings, as well as classic and contemporaneous American literature, H.C. Westermann at War: Art and Manhood in Cold War America provides a detailed reading of one artist's complex response to American combat in the mid-twentieth century. Generously illustrated with reproductions of well-known sculptures, including the memorials and Death Ships, and several heretofore unpublished drawings, this study significantly deepens our understanding of a major American artist while broadening the canon of post-World War II art." "The text is accompanied by more than 110 black-and-white illustrations."--Jacket
