Including works by varied artists such as Frederic Lord Leighton, Alfred Gilbert, Eric Gill, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Ben Nicholson, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Anthony Caro, Richard Long, and Damien Hirst, the book highlights the dialogues between British and international sculpture, examines the importance of the countrys landscape as a location and medium, and looks at the perennial choice faced by the sculptor between figuration and abstraction. Sculpture has changed dramatically in the last century. This compelling book documents these seismic shifts.
