La description

Found in public spaces and parks, art galleries and university buildings, along riverbanks as well as in city squares, private gardens and even underwater, Canadian sculpture encompasses a range of materials and styles from traditional bone and bronze to postmodern multimedia installations. Artistic intentions among the nation’s sculptors, whether political, social, theoretical, or aesthetic, are as diverse as Canada itself. Sculpture in Canada is a groundbreaking work that will have a profound impact in introducing readers to the underappreciated wealth of this most public of Canadian arts.

“An essential resource for artists, students, collectors, professors and public at large, Maria Tippett has realized and [filled] a great gap in Canadian art history--the first comprehensive book on Canadian sculpture ever. ” ~ John K. Grande, Vie des Arts, winter 2019
