PAUL MANSHIP., Manship, John.

Author Name    Manship, John.

Title   PAUL MANSHIP.

Publisher    Abbeville, New York, 1989, first edition.

Seller ID   21776

216 pp, folio (13 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 1558590021 Beautifully illustrated in color and b&w. "From his sexy little bronze nymphs to his soaring golden 'Prometheus' at Rockefeller Center, the sculptures of Paul Manship have begu iled the public through much of this century. This dazzling monograph - as elegantly sophisticated as the artist's own oeuvre - celebrates the life's work of America's master of Art Deco.....As close to a jet setter as one could be in an e r a o f o c e an travel, Manship spent much of the early 1920s in Paris, where he was one of two American sculptors to have work included in the famous 'Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes' (the show that gave us th e t er m A rt D ec o). His worldwide reputation flourished in the 1930s with monumental commissions for the Bronx Zoo, Rockefeller Center, the New York World's Fair, and a multitude of other. The age of Abstract Expressionism eventually threw Man sh ip in to e cli pse , b ut the rediscovery of Art Deco illuminated the charms of his work once again, and his sculptures are again highly admired and passionately collected. This lively biography, affectionately written by Manship's son, pr ovid es muc h ne w i nfo rmat ion abou t the artist's long and productive career. The full range of that career is made vividly clear in the striking illustrations, many never before published. Because Manship was meticulous about documenting his work, th e bo ok in clud es r are s tudi es an d plasters that no longer exist, a revelatory sampling of little-known early and late works, and pristine original views of works that have since suffered the effects of time and weather. The result i s an e ngag ing, enligh tenin g boo k that deft ly cap tures the spirit of an artist wholeheartedly devoted to the pursuit of beauty." Slight waviness to top/bottom of textblock. Dust jacket has very minor edge wear, light rubbing. Near Fine/Ver y Good
