160 pp, 4to (12" H). Profusely illustrated with b&w and color photographs. "(T)he first comprehensive exploration of Blumenfeld's work, (this book) forms a uniquely detailed study of her development. Dividing her sculpture into eight themed chapters, it concentrates on the major ideas and technical concerns that have preoccupied the artist from the beginning: Two Sides of a Woman; Creation; Metamorphosis; Options; Shadow Figures; Dreams; Souls; and, finally, Mythology. Early and recent works are illustrated side by side, highlighting the aesthetic and conceptual growth which has earned her respect from critics and collectors throughout Europe and the United States. (Upson's) text illuminates Blumenfeld's intense working methods and reveals how her life - divided between Italy, where she works, England, where she now lives, and the United States, where she was born - contributes to her creativity. Each chapter provides an introduction to the individual pieces, a review of Blumenfeld's contribution to twentieth-century sculpture, and concludes with Blumenfeld's own thought-provoking comments on her work." Dust jacket has minor rubbing, minor wear/wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds. tiny tear at top of spine.
