Booknews
The work of the contemporary American sculptor, known for his true-to- life plaster figures of lower and middle-class Americans engaged in every day activities, is shown in 132 photographs, most in color. The brief text outlines Segal's life and approach to art. This magnificent overview of Seurat, the great Neo-impressionist artist, is published on the centenary of his death, and accompanies a major retrospective of his works, organized by the Reunion des Musees Nationaux/Musee d'Orsay, Paris, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Seurat is presented in the social and cultural context of late 19th-century France, while the richly illustrated volume reproduces many (undeservedly) seldom seen works. With 352 illustrations, 244 in color. 121/4x101/4 Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
