The Figure in 20th Century Sculpture

April 11 - May 31, 1998

 

Charles Grafly, "Pioneer Woman"

The figure has occupied sculpture for centuries - so it comes as no surprise that artists of the 20th century have used this form to express themselves as well. The 50 figurative works in the exhibition span the various art movements of this century from realism to abstraction.

 

Aristide Maillol, "Reclining Nude"

 

Among the 35 artists represented are Auguste Rodin, Alexander Archipenko, Gutzon Borglum, Alberto Giacometti, Gaston Lachaise, Aristide Maillol, Paul Manship, Louise Nevelson, and Elie Nadelman.

 

Theodore Roszak, "Torso Manique"

 

Drawn from the collections of the Edwin A. Ulrich Museum of Art, Wichita, Kansas, and the Wichita Museum of Art, and toured nationally by Smith Kramer Fine Art Services, Kansas City, Missouri.
