Description:
Engagingly written and colourfully illustrated, 'The Experience of Modern Sculpture' leads us to understand, and take pleasure in, the sculpture of the 20th and 21st centuries.

It shows us how modern sculpture has fascinating links to ancient art, to science, and to the world around us.
