Overview

This book is the most comprehensive publication to date on the work of Elie Nadelman (1882-1946), an important sculptor and a key member of the New York art scene in the first half of the 20th century. Accompanying the first major retrospective of Nadelman's work since 1975, it brings his achievement to a new generation of art enthusiasts.Nadelman fused classical influences with the subject matter and imagery of popular culture. Using bronze, marble, wood, and plaster, he created stylized, curvilinear emblems of modern life whose formal motifs referenced both the antique and the modern. Here, Barbara Haskell presents a fully researched and broad-based examination of Nadelman's art by juxtaposing his elegant drawings with related sculptures, filling a gap in the literature on 20th-century American sculpture.


About the Author:
Barbara Haskell is Curator of Early Twentieth Century Art at the Whitney Museum of American Art. A well-known scholar and curator, her books include The American Century: Art & Culture 1900-2000 Part One, as well as the monographs Marsden Hartley, Milton Avery, Charles Demuth, and Joseph Stella.
