In the last forty years public sculpture has changed drastically. Classical or Renaissance tradition has been questioned and rejected or transformed and other basic premises of Western art have been overturned. This book, the first to place contemporary public sculpture into historical and critical perspective, looks at the topic in the context of these changing ideas in order to reach a clearer understanding of its development and what is really at stake in the public art controversy.
