‘His ability to survey the accomplishments of the art since Rodin … is unsurpassed … This history is necessary reading for all who are interested in the art of our own day’ – Studio International
‘Straightforward, intelligent approach to a complex subject’ – The Economist
‘Compactly written, profusely illustrated survey of the modern movement which is distinguished by the knowledge, sincerity and deeply felt convictions of the author’ – British Book News

Sir Herbert Read traces the development of modern sculpture from Rodin to the present day and brings order into the apparently chaotic proliferation of styles and techniques during this period.
