Promotional Information

A behind-the scene look at the fabrication process in sculpture and the artist's involvement with that process.; Lippencott Inc opened its doors for a business a year before the author s birth, and as a child he often visited, thereby lending a unique first-person account of the evolution of the shop and, as a result, the art of the time.; Many of these artists featured in this book have works in every major museum collection, including the MoMA, the Walker Art Center, and Storm King, among many others, and continue to appear in solo and group shows.; Artists including Claes Oldenburg, Louise Nevelson, Ellsworth Kelly, Robert Indiana and Barnett Newman came to Lippincott to create some of the best-known sculptures of their generation.; The images for this book are chosen from the photographs in Lippincott s archives, most of which were taken by Roxanne Everett, who was vice-president at the company until 1979. Very few of the photographs have been published before, and no one else has access to this collection.; Storm King, which Lippincott has had a long-standing relationship with, will be celebrating their 50th year in 2010. They are on board to do something to coincide with publication.
