Featuring works by many of the leading twentieth-century Modernists, the sculpture collection of the Meadows Museum in Dallas, Texas, is an American gem. Large- and small-scale works by renowned artists such as Jacques Lipchitz, Henry Moore, Isamu Noguchi and Claes Oldenburg can be seen on the Museum’s welcoming outdoor plaza, while important figural sculptures by Auguste Rodin, Aristide Maillol and Alberto Giacometti are on display within the Museum. This elegantly designed book is the first publication on this outstanding collection, offering photography by Laura Wilson and new scholarship by Steven A. Nash on works by some of the most accomplished artists to work in three dimensions.
