Illustrates the central role of portraiture in the oeuvre of Venezuelan-American artist Marisol (b. 1930), featuring good reproductions of 21 life-sized assemblage sculptures composed mainly of painted wooden block torsos and carved heads combined with found objects related to the lives of the subjects, who include such diverse figures as Bob Hope, Charles de Gaulle, Bishop Desmond Tutu and Andy Warhol. In addition to individual commentaries on the innovative pieces (dating from 1962 to 1989) and on Marisol's often satirical interpretations of her subjects, the catalogue includes a biographical essay discussing her distinctive mode of portraiture and her links to the work of such artists as Johns, Rauschenberg and Indiana.
