Abstract (English)

"Since the dawn of history, humans have created three-dimensional renderings of the body, and for centuries artists strove for realism, often creating works of stunning verisimilitude and using color to enhance religious, cultural, or personal meaning. This volume examines key sculptural works from 14th century Europe to the global present, revealing new insights into the strategies artists deploy to blur the distinction between art and life." -- publisher's website.
