June, 1999: Spotlight on Sculpture

For the month of June we are highlighting the contributions great sculptors have made to the fine arts.
It's a bit difficult pinning down what this medium is and is not, as the field overlaps significantly with ceramics, glass art, mixed media, and installation art. But to get you started, we have compiled a list of all of the artists in our database whom we have labelled as "sculptors".
The featured artist for June is Audrey Flack, a photorealist painter who is also a master at creating hugely elegant jewel-like sculptures. Click here to see her personal home page and a variety of other online exhibits of her work.

The featured museum site is Carol Gerten's Fine Art, one of the first and best image archives on the Internet. Click here for a brief review of the site and to see some sample images.

The featured online exhibit is Michael Lucero: Sculpture 1976-1995, which was created to accompany a travelling exhibit organized by the mint Museum. Click here for a brief review of the exhibit and to visit it.

The featured book is Anish Kapoor, by Pier Luigi Tazzi and Homi K. Bhabha. It's a look at Kapoor's career and his subtle, spacial work.

The featured print is a 20" by 40" photograph of Antonio Canova's sculpture, Cupid and Psyche [No longer available].
