Barbara Chase-Riboud, Sculptor
Peter Selz, Anthony F. Janson
Abrams, 1999

Barbara Chase-Riboud is of the most significant one and original artists of her generation -- a sculptor whose dramatic explorations of literary and historical themes have earned her a presence in major museums around the world. This richly illustrated book presents the first comprehensive overview of Chase-Riboud's 30-year career as a sculptor and draftsman. Distinguished art historians Peter Selz and Anthony F. Janson show how history, archaeology, spiritualism, the Baroque tradition, and Chase-Riboud's parallel career as a poet-novelist (Sally Hemings, Echo of Lions) have influenced her work, from the Malcolm X, Tantra, Zanzibar, and Cleopatra series to her recent monument Africa Rising, the award-winning New York City landmark that commemorates a colonial slave-era African-American burial ground.
