The Big Deal: ‘A New American Sculpture, 1914–1945’ Exhibition Catalogue

by Zoee Acosta 18 Apr 2018 8:30 AM

“A New American Sculpture, 1914–1945 ” is the first publication to situate the individual contributions of Gaston Lachaise, Robert Laurent, Elie Nadelman, and William Zorach into a compelling constellation of artists with shared aesthetic and social concerns. Although each European-born, American artist cultivated his own distinct style, their creative priorities were all deeply rooted in quiet composition, synthetic approaches to anatomy, and architectural unity of curves and volume.

BD sculpture book 400At a time when abstract forms were popular, Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach were all ultimately in favor of maintaining the integrity of the human body to explore modernist styles. This handsome book underscores their unrelenting search for a novel American visual tradition at the intersection of modernism, historic visual culture, and contemporary popular imagery.

Sign up and win this deal and receive the accompanying catalogue to the “A New American Sculpture, 1914–1945: Lachaise, Laurent, Nadelman, and Zorach” exhibition at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth.
