Manuel Neri : The Human Figure in Plaster and on Paper
An engaging book examining the work of the American sculptor Manuel Neri
A near-contemporary of other notable California-based artists Richard Diebenkorn and Wayne Thiebaud, Neri is best known for his large-scale figurative sculptures that combine classical figuration with the dynamic mark-making of Abstract Expressionism.
This book, that accompanies an exhibition at the Yale University Art Gallery traces the compelling yet often contradictory thematic arcs of Neri's powerful work and his greater impact on the field of sculpture. At the heart of the publication are Jock Reynolds's personal reflections on Neri and his legacy as a teacher, adding insight and intimacy to the scholarly understanding of the artist. Photographs of Neri in his studio, archival images, and installation photos of the related exhibition at the Yale University Art Gallery round out the book.
With its blend of art history and personal reflection, this unique book offers valuable insight into an important, understudied California artist.
