This book tells the story, beginning with the powerful European talents who settled in the United States and those few American sculptors who struggled to free themselves from the academy. Subsequent sculptors of avant-garde persuasion have moved in all directions, and their work is dramatically presented: the abstract sculptors, the Surrealist, the Pop, the Junk, the Kinetic, the Assemblagist, the Environmental, the Minimalist.
Dore Ashton, a leading young American critic and historian, has closely observed these developments since their inception. She is personally acquainted with many of the leading figures, but, more important, knows most of the works intimately. Her book is inspirational, in the sense that it is an account of the growth and fruition -indeed the rebirth- of a great and vital art in our country.
