Acerca de


Written with his co-operation and access to his studio, this is a survey of the achievements of the American metal artist and sculptor, Albert Paley. It provides insights into his working methods and a detailed record of his career. Paley's most famous commission, the eight-foot portal gates of the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Instutition in Washington, DC, unveiled in 1974, took him and an assistant a year to complete, and since then he has made architectural sculptures for museums, organization and private clients all over the world. The art historian, Edward Lucie-Smith, discusses the significance and diversity of Paley's achievements, exploring how, like that of so many American artists, his work crosses the boundaries that separate art from craft. The book's illustrations reproduce not only Paley's major works, but also preliminary drawings.

From Publishers Weekly:

In work that was extravagant, organic, often reminiscent of the Art Nouveau styles, Albert Paley brought a sinuousness to jewelry and sculpture. In The Art of Albert Paley: Iron & Bronze & Steel, critic and art historian Edward Lucie-Smith assesses the work of this contemporary American artist whose work combines art and craft. "There was a sort of battle going on between the major and the minor arts," recalls Paley of his 1960s arts education. "It seemed to us that creativity alone should be the supreme consideration. We wanted to elevate what was seen as a minor endeavor and make it a major artistic statement." 130 illustrations, 40 in color.
