in Postwar Sculpture, 1945–1975
Rebecca Peabody, editor
Anglo–American Exchange in Postwar Sculpture, 1945–1975 redresses an important art historical oversight. Histories of American and British sculpture are usually told separately, with artists and their work divided by nationality; yet such boundaries obscure a vibrant exchange of ideas, individuals, and aesthetic influences. In reality, the postwar art world saw dynamic interactions between British and American sculptors, critics, curators, teachers, and institutions. Using works of art as points of departure, this book explores the international movement of people, objects, and ideas, demonstrating the importance of Anglo–American exchange to the history of postwar sculpture.
Rebecca Peabody is Manager of Research Projects at the Getty Research Institute and a specialist in 20th–century American art and visual culture.
