View Full Version : History of Sculpture text?
07-17-2006, 08:22 PM
I'm in the process of developing a intro level sculpture course. Because of limited hardware availability, this will be low tech, wire, plaster, cardboard, etc. I'm looking for a text that will give the beginning student a overview of the history of sculpture. I'm not interested in a how to book heavy on techniques that they won't be able to attempt with commonly available tools and materials.

Off hand I can't think of an introductory textbook on the history of sculpture.
If you are interested, this one can be a good introductory textbook on the techniques of sculpture, with a chapter showing pictures of great sculptures.
