Early Modern Sculpture
Vintage hardback coffee table book discussing early modern sculpture. By William Tucker, published in 1974. First edition, 174 pages.
"Sculpture was a separate thing, as was the easel picture, but it did not require a wall like the picture. It did not even need a roof. It was an object that could exist for itself alone, and it was well to give it entirely the character of a complete thing about which one could walk, and which one could look at from all sides. And yet it had to distinguish itself somehow form the other things, the ordinary things which everyone cold touch."
