Overview

An in-depth monograph on the celebrated Israeli artist. Most renowned for his arresting sculpture "Falling Leaves" and other monumental sculptures, Menashe Kadishman is a highly instinctual and at the same time conceptual painter and sculptor whose works are exhibited at some of the world's most important museums. Born on a kibbutz, Kadishman was a shepherd for many years. This experience informs much of his work, especially his brightly hued sheep's heads and sheep imagery. Kadishman's unique ability to weave nature and art to tell stories of humanity make him among the most lyrical of living artists. Here his career is traced from his artistic studies and early exhibitions to his recent works. A variety of art historians draw attention to Kadishman's themes, which embrace history, warfare, the Bible and the Holocaust, while others place him within the context of other artists at work today. A generous sampling of color plates and black and white images illustrate Kadishman's incredible range and deeply personal style.
