Description - Dreambook by Mark Di Suvero
This beautifully illustrated book - the definitive volume on American sculptor Mark di Suvero - features more than two hundred images of his most important works interspersed with short texts by the artist and by other writers who have inspired his art-making practice, plus a contribution by Francois Barre. Humanist in approach and populist in sensibility, di Suvero's sculpture is accessible, inviting, and inclusive. Praised in particular for his monumental assemblages incorporating steel and wood, di Suvero emerged as a superstar in the 1960s.He was the first living artist to show his sculpture at the Tuileries Gardens, Paris, and the first honored with three major exhibitions at Storm King Art Center. His distinctive, bold pieces can be found in museums and public collections all over the world, and he continues to be the subject of numerous exhibitions both in the United States and in Europe. "Mark di Suvero: Dreambook" is a celebration of his artistic oeuvre and of his long, distinguished career. It is copublished by Offsite.
