Publisher's description: Peter Hachler (1922-99) was one of the most formally radical, and most revered, sculptors in contemporary Swiss art. His work was characterized by a geometric rigor leavened by an intuitive playfulness, even as he took to working with industrial materials like concrete, plastic, cast iron, and stainless steel. Many of his sculptures are truly monumental, vast works designed for display in public spaces and serving as art-in-architecture. This book takes a close look back at Hachler's art from a contemporary perspective. It features nearly forty of his sculptures, newly photographed for the book, alongside a thoughtful essay by art historian Martino Stierli setting his art in its postwar Swiss context and a piece by curator Sabine Schaschl with his widow and daughter exploring his life and inspirations.
