Item description for 1000 Esculturas de los grandes maestros (Spanish Edition) by Joseph Manca...
Showcasing exquisitely beautiful, provocative pieces that challenge readers to think about art in new ways, 1000 Esculturas de los grandes maestros represents an exhaustive history of sculpture in the West. Written by noted art historian Joseph Manca, the book traces the art form's development throughout five distinct periods Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Modern. Readers discover masterpieces such as Hercules, the Venus de Milo, Pallas Velletri, and other stunning antiquities. They also learn about Jean-Antoine Houdons La Frileuse, banned from the Paris Salon for its frank depiction of the female form. Hundreds of other pieces, including works by Auguste Rodin, Camille Claudel, Paul Gauguin, Edgar Degas, Donatello, Picasso, and Henri Matisse, complete this survey. Accompanying each work is a full color photograph as well as important information. A glossary, artist biographies, and a chronology round out the book.
