Overview

Line is an essential element in twentieth-century sculpture, and among the first to creatively explore the interpretation of figure through a single line was Auguste Rodin, whose 1893 bronzework L’Éternelle Idole is among the modernist masterpieces in the first-rate art collection of Elizabeth and Alexander Kasser.
 
Line and Sculpture in Dialogue reproduces more than fifty works of art held by the Kasser/Mochary Family Foundation, among them Rodin’s L’Éternelle Idole and works by Paul Cézanne, Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Edgar Degas, Henri Matisse, Amedeo Modigliani, and Alberto Giacometti.Primarily sculptures and graphic art, the works offer new perspectives on modernism with special consideration to the artists’ fascination with line as a means of representation. Together, the artworks also demonstrate the shift within modernism toward abstraction. Beautifully illustrated, this volume offers a fascinating look at the development of new methods and styles within twentieth-century sculpture.
