Item description for Magdalena Abakanowicz by Magdalena Abakanowicz, Abraham Marie Hammacher & Giuliano Gori...

The sculptures of Magdalena Abakanowicz, one of the preeminent sculptors of the past half-century, offer a moving, tactile testament to both individuality and common humanity. This monograph provides an exhaustive overview of Abakanowicz's permanent installations (among other works), such as Katarsis at the Fattoria di Celle sculpture garden in Santomato di Pistoia, Italy. There, as in other of her bronzes, limbless, headless torsos stand in soldierly ranks, their surfaces rough with textures that differentiate each from the other. Mournful and mute, the artist's monumental groups are fitting, solemn representations of contemporary human alienation and political manipulation. Drawings and essays, along with artist statements and an interview, complete this necessary contextualization of an important contemporary artist.

Reviews - What do customers think about Magdalena Abakanowicz?

Best book available on Abakanowicz  Dec 1, 1999
Excellent attention to Abakanowicz's aesthetic modes and influences
Ideas and art on a grand scale  Dec 23, 1998
Rose presents the reader with a book of incredible beauty and depth encompassing large scale ideas as well as art. Who can help but become an admirer of both this wonderful artist and the author as the pages reveal Abokanowicz's silent but triumphant monuments. From towering textile pieces to gigantic bronze installations, Abakanowicz's emotive creations are dually tranquil and disturbing, but most of all they are profoundly free. Rose brings Abakanowicz's strength and vision to the fore in a volume worthy of it's own pedastal.
