Do painters have a special eye for sculpture? How do painters transpose their worlds of images into the third dimension? Besides their ground-breaking paintings, many of the great twentieth-century masters also created unique sculptural oeuvres. Yet not all of them have received the general acknowledgement they deserve. Devoted entirely to the ways painters approach sculpture, this publication compares and contrasts paintings and sculptural works, providing fascinating insight into artistic working processes. It strikes an arc from Edgar Degas to Georg Baselitz, demonstrating how the great painters employed new themes and materials to revolutionize sculpture, which they continue to influence to this very day. (German edition ISBN 978-3-7757-2244-5)
