Description

Presenting both indoor and outdoor work, this volume examines the depth and breadth of George Rickey's sculptural oeuvre between 1950 and 2000 and its place in the history of American art. Trained originally as a painter, George Rickey turned to sculpture in 1949. In 1964 his kinetic piece Two Lines Temporal "established him internationally as a major figure in the history of kinetic sculpture," according to art historian Nan Rosenthal. In 1966 he gave up teaching to devote himself entirely to his creative work. The recipient of 10 honorary doctorate degrees and many awards and honors, George Rickey built a stellar career as an exhibiting artist, author, and professor of art in the U.S. and abroad.
