This listing is ONLY for "A Guide to Chicago's Public Sculpture".

Handbook of Chicago's sculpture including entries on each of the works with location, title and sculptor as well as a description of the work.

Within several blocks in downtown Chicago, one may view public sculpture by Calder, Chagall, Dubuffet, Miro, Henry Moore', Noguchi, Oldenburg, and Picasso Within the same few blocks, one can see works of a more historical character an equestrian monument to a Civil War general, a pair of lions that date to the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893, and works by John Storrs and Ivan Mestrovic in the Art Deco style. As the more than 200 significant works chosen for this book re- veal, Chicago is the setting for the most complete survey of public art in the nation.

A Guide to Chicago's Public Sculpture is the most comprehensive handbook of Chicago's public sculpture available and is an excellent companion to the heralded guide, Chicago's Famous Buildings. The product of prodigious research, including interviews with living artists, A Guide to Chicago's Public Sculpture provides individual entries on each of the works in the metropolitan area selected for the guide. These entries give location, title, sculptor, a brief description of the work, completion date, installation date, a biography of the sculptor, and, where appropriate, information on the subject. Photographs-most of which were specially commissioned for this book-illustrate each entry.

The entries in A Guide to Chicago's Public Sculpture are arranged within twelve geographic groupings. This method of organization, together with the volume's several maps, tables, indexes, and the introductory essay by Franz Schulze (professor of art history and art critic for the Chicago Sun Times) make this a most useful volume for finding, viewing and understanding Chicago's public sculpture, one sure to inform and delight Chicago residents and visitors.
