JOEL SHAPIRO: TRACING THE FIGURE. Baltimore Museum of Art, 1990. Organized and published by Des Moines Art Center. 80 pp. with 43 ills. (26 col.). 26 x 22 cm. LC 90-81832 ISBN 1879003007 In English.
Exploring the complex intermingling of figurative and abstract elements in the work of American sculptor Shapiro (b. 1941), this catalogue features full-page reproductions of 26 mainly small-scale bronze compositions (most dating from the 1980s) along with illustrations of related drawings, models and sculptures. In a lengthy interview, Shapiro discusses his introduction of the human figure as a primary motif in his work, and a critical essay evaluates the artist's manipulations of abstract rectilinear forms, emphasizing his departure from Minimalist conventions.
