0442313829 / 9780442313821 Very Good.

Clean and unmarked; pages bright; binding tight. 64 pages; black-and-white photos; 7 photos in color. Language: English. Noted artist Chaim Gross demonstrates the technique of plaster sculpture in his New York studio. A chronology of the 1967 work entitled Balancing. 'Every step in the creating of a sculpture is shown and explained in this unusual photographic record of work in progress: constructing the armature, mixing plaster, building up form in successive applications of plaster, refining shapes through additions and rasping away of plaster -- even the foundry process of casting the finished plaster in bronze is covered. Chaim Gross's clear and orderly approach to his work makes him an ideal guide for students, and his carefree, buoyant sculpture will invite them to try his technique for their own creative expression.' --from jacket flap.

Sculpture: Form and Method, Myers, Bernard
5 Sculpture: Form and Method Myers, Bernard
Paperback. Softcover published 1965 by Reinhold. Noticeable average wear: edges rubbed; small corner creases; age-tanning to paper. Text clean and unmarked; binding tight. Good reading/research copy. 95 pages; black-and-white and a few color photos. Language: English. 'This is a factual analysis rather than a critical guide. It introduces the reader to some of the sculptor's methods and materials. The author shows how these methods and materials, united to the ideas and concepts of the time, condition the ultimate form of sculpture. The sculpture shown here is limited to the work of Western artists, and is described in historical sequence because the author believes that an understanding of classical sculpture is essential to a proper appreciation of modern sculpture.' -- from inside front cover. Keywords: art history, Bernard Meyers. No ISBN.
