of the most significant and original artists of her generation--a sculptor whose dramatic explorations of literary and historical themes have earned her a presence in major museums around the world. This richly illustrated book presents the first comprehensive overview of Chase-Riboud's 30-year career as a sculptor and draftsman. Distinguished art historians Peter Selz and Anthony F. Janson show how history, archaeology, spiritualism, the Baroque tradition, and Chase-Riboud's parallel career as a poet-novelist (Sally Hemings, Echo of Lions) have influenced her work, from the Malcolm X, Tantra, Zanzibar, and Cleopatra series to her recent monument Africa Rising, the award-winning New York City landmark that commemorates a colonial slave-era African-American burial ground. / PETER SELZ is professor emeritus of art history at the University of California at Berkeley. A former curator of painting and sculpture at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, he is the author of 12 books on 20th-century art. ANTHONY F. JANSON is professor of art history at the University of North Carolina, Wilmington. He is author of the latest edition of Janson's History of Art as well as the exhibition catalogue Barbara Chase- Riboud: The Monument Drawings, and is a contributor to Abrams' Vietnam: Reflexes and Reflections, among other titles." - Publisher.
