The two volumes of Sculpture in 20th-century Britain start to retell the story of sculpture in this country as being as much outside as inside the gallery, by immigrants as much as by the 'British', and in the form of printed material as much as in primary production.
Volume I provides a new survey of the period, drawing on recent scholarship which examines the various contexts in which sculpture was produced and interpreted.
With an introduction by Penelope Curtis (Curator of the Henry Moore Institute) and twenty essays exploring sculpture over the course of the century, under five distinct themes:
The identity of the sculptor
Infrastructures: formation and networks
Aesthetics: forms and meanings
Conditions of display
Reception: the context of reproduction and dissemination
