Sir Nicholas Grimshaw CBE PRA "In order to tell the story of British sculpture in the 20th century, the curators believed that it was vital to present a narrative from 1877 to 2000, a time span that would allow visitors to understand better how sculpture has arrived where it has in Britain today. Indeed, the key questions raised by the exhibition are: 'What is sculpture?' and 'What is British?' with the sculptor's choice between abstraction and figuration emerging as a significant challenge. 'Modern British Sculpture' does not have all the answers but, true to the ideals that are an intrinsic part of our academy, it raises the questions and opens a debate that will continue long afterwards." From Leighton to Lucas this fascinating book explores sculpture in Britain from the end of the Victorian era to the dawn of the new millennium.
With incisive essays by leading authorities, and including previously unpublished archive material and new bibliographic sources, this compelling book documents the seismic shifts in sculpture in the last century.
