A clean, unmarked book with a tight binding. 36 pages. Slight edge wear and scuffing to cover. Small bump at bottom of spine. Large format: 12" x 12". "Sorel Etrog is a pivotal figure in mid to late 20th century art and graces museum collections throughout the world. For the past fifty years, Etrog's constructions of painted wood forever installed him into our visual literacy. He has influenced the evolution from modern to contemporary art through his abstract constructions and monumental sculptures. Using a language of non-objective organic and geometric forms and by developing fresh spatial relations, Etrog leads the viewer to explore new perceptions of space, colour and form for the 21st century." - Katherine Hough, Chief Curator of the Palm Springs Art Museum.
