Description

On the occasion of the ninetieth birthday of Beverly Pepper, an illustrated biography of her life's work. Beverly Pepper has spent her lifetime at the forefront of monumental sculpture worldwide. From her first twenty-foot sculpture in Spoleto in 1962 to her four forty-foot columns in the Federal Plaza, New York, her work ranges in varying scales across three continents - many collected here for the first time. As a pioneer in the use of diverse industrial metals, she was among the first artists to work in Cor-ten steel (1965), as well as casting sculpture in ductile iron. Her intuitive creativity and signal energy expanded the language of modern sculpture, invigorating its capacity to address collective experiences and diverse concepts. In exploring new materials with original insights, she has a distinguished place in the history of twentieth-century art.show more
