Italian and Spanish Sculpture: Catalogue of the J. Paul Getty Museum Collection

por Peggy Fogelman

The Getty Museum established its
Sculpture Department in 1984. Since then its holdings have grown to encompass
some 170 works of European sculpture ranging in date from the Renaissance to the
early twentieth century, with particular strengths in sixteenth- and
seventeenth-century bronzes and Neoclassical works in marble and terracotta.
Although the collection boasts many works by renowned sculptors, it is also
distinguished by objects of high aesthetic quality and historical interest by
lesser-known artists.

 


The present volume focuses on Italian
and Spanish sculpture in the Museum’s collection, including such exceptional
works as Antico’s Bust of a Young
Man, Benvenuto Cellini’s Satyr, Gianlorenzo
Bernini’s Boy with a Dragon, Giuliano
Finelli’s Bust of a Noblewoman, and
Antonio Canova’s Apollo Crowning Himself.
In addition to presenting copious information about the history and
iconography of the sculptures, much of it based on new findings, Italian and Spanish Sculpture includes
detailed discussions of the manufacture, materials, and condition of each work.
The technical descriptions in the catalogue entries are complemented by
appendixes containing X-rays of selected sculptures and analyses of the bronze
alloys. The catalogue is abundantly illustrated, including multiple views of
each sculpture.

Bernini and the Birth of Baroque Portrait Sculpture

por Andrea Bacchi

Gian Lorenzo Bernini was the greatest sculptor of the Baroque period, and yet—surprisingly—there has never before been a major exhibition of his sculpture in North America. Bernini and the Birth of Baroque Portrait Sculpture showcases portrait sculptures from all phases of the artist’s long career, from the very early Antonio Coppola of 1612 to Clement X of about 1676, one of his last completed works. Bernini’s portrait busts were masterpieces of technical virtuosity; at the same time, they revealed a new interest in psychological depth. Bernini’s ability to capture the essential character of his subjects was unmatched and had a profound influence on other leading sculptors of his day, such as Alessandro Algardi, Giuliano Finelli, and Francesco Mochi.
Bernini and the Birth of Baroque Portrait Sculpture is a groundbreaking study that features drawings and paintings by Bernini and his contemporaries. Together they demonstrate not only the range, skill, and acuity of these masters of Baroque portraiture but also the interrelationship of the arts in seventeenth-century Rome.

Masterpieces of the J. Paul Getty Museum: European Sculpture: English Language Edition

por Peter Fusco

The J. Paul Getty Museum’s
collection of European sculpture featured in this volume ranges in date from
the late fifteenth century to the very early twentieth and includes a wide
variety of media: marble, bronze, alabaster, terracotta, plaster, wood, ivory,
and gold. The earliest sculpture represented is the mysterious Saint Cyricus by Francesco Laurana; the
latest is a shield-like portrait of Medusa by the eccentric Italian sculptor
Vincenzo Gemito. Among the more than forty works included in this handsomely
illustrated volume are sculptures by Antico (Bust of a Young Man); Cellini (a Satyr designed for Fontainebleau); Giambologna (a Female Figure that may represent Venus);
Bernini (Boy with a Dragon); and
Carpeaux (Bust of Jean-Léon Gérôme).
Well represented here is the Museum’s splendid collection of Mannerist and
early Baroque bronzes, including such masterpieces as Johann Gregor van der
Schardt’s Mercury and two superb
works by Adriaen de Vries: Juggling Man and
Rearing Horse. These works are
indicative of the extraordinary quality of the J. Paul Getty Museum’s
collection of post-Classical European sculpture.

Creating Welded Sculpture

por Nathan Cabot Hale

In this generously illustrated guide, newly revised and updated, a well-known American sculptor shares his forty years of experience working with welded sculpture techniques. Nathan Cabot Hale begins with the basic assumption that it is necessary for a sculptor-welder to have the same professional skills as a good job-welder. To help readers gain those skills, he demonstrates both traditional and comparatively new welding methods step by step, including the oxyacetylene technique in modeling small-scale figurative sculpture.
Mr. Hale first discusses the basic tools and techniques of welded sculpture, then addresses the construction of abstract and organic shapes and modeling solid figures. This is followed by detailed coverage of finishing techniques, arc welding, and welding large-scale commissioned works. He even dispenses helpful practical advice on the economics of fine art — exhibiting work, staying alive, searching out public and private support, and more.
Over 80 helpful diagrams and more than 100 photographs accompany the text, demonstrating techniques and procedures and depicting works in progress as well as finished works. In a new chapter written specially for this edition, Mr. Hale shares the heartening artistic philosophy he has developed over his long and distinguished career. Sculptors at many levels of accomplishment will find his book instructive and inspiring.
