More About This Title New Zealand Sculpture


Charting the growth of sculpture from the era of British imports and influence to the more confident expression of the 20th and 21st centuries, this leading study in New Zealand art tells the enthralling story of a form that has become stronger in recent years. Envisioning a new popularity for sculpting with the establishment of several outdoor sculpture walks, this updated edition includes a chapter discussing New Zealand sculpture’s international reach, its role at Venice Biennales, and the importance of overseas-based New Zealand sculptors such as Francis Upritchard and Ronnie van Hout. Ideal for art lovers and educational institutions alike, this analysis also includes a general bibliography and reading lists for each major artist.
