Hellenistic Sculpture: A Handbook
The exuberant realism and virtuoso technique of Hellenistic sculpture formed the basis of European art. Under Alexander and his cosmopolitan successors, sculptors enriched the classical Greek repertoire with a whole range of new subjects - hermaphrodites, putti, peasants, boxers - and new styles - baroque treatment, genre figures, individualized portraiture. Professor Smith offers a reappraisal of this entire artistic epoch as a period of innovation, demonstrating the variety, subtlety and complexity of its styles. Numerous illustrations reveal the skill and inventiveness of the Hellenistic masters, who created works of great beauty and expressive power. The result is a lively survey of a vital phase in the evolution of Western art.

Sculpture Now
This new book in the World of Art series surveys the dynamic developments in sculptural practice worldwide since the mid-1990s, outlining major trends and identifying important and vibrant artists who are forging new paths and setting the contemporary agenda. It explores such key topics as the use of the body in sculpture, the appropriation of everyday ephemera, the use of light and sound as technological elements, nature and ecology as dominant and pressing issues, the inter-relationship of sculpture with design and other evolving fields of contemporary art, and the huge impact of installation. Established artists such as Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Mariko Mori, Ai Weiwei and Rachel Whiteread are featured alongside an international cross-section of promising new talent, including Polly Morgan, Patricia Piccinini, Sopheap Pich and Anselm Reyle. With over 200 photographs displaying a huge range of sculptural works, both in the gallery and on-site, Sculpture Now offers an authoritative and highly readable look at one of the most exciting arenas of contemporary artistic practice.

Barbara Hepworth
Barbara Hepworth died in 1975, after a long illness which had not prevented her from completing the work which many consider to be her masterpiece: The Family of Man. Born in Yorkshire in 1903, of the heroic generation in twentieth-century British art which included Henry Moore (with whom she studied in Leeds) and Ben Nicholson (whom she married), she explored in her sculpture the forms of life - especially human life - as well as those of mathematics. Professor Hammacher has added new material to his study to bring the story up to the time of her death, and has included several new illustrations.

Greek Sculpture: The Late Classical Period and Sculpture in Colonies and Overseas
This is the last in the series of Sir John Boardman's acclaimed handbooks on Greek sculpture; a sequel to similar volumes on the Archaic and Classical periods. Here, the story continues through the fourth century B.C. to the days of Alexander the Great. The innovations of the period are discussed, such as the female nude and portraiture, along with many important monuments including the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus and several of the great names such as Praxiteles and Lysippus who were lionized by later generations. The volume also presents Greek sculpture made in the colonies of Italy and Sicily from the Archaic period onwards, as well as that made for eastern, non-Greek rulers. A final section considers the role of Greek sculpture in moulding western taste to the present day.

The Art of Tracey Emin
Tracey Emin, one of the best-known contemporary British artists, has become a potent symbol of the relationship between art and celebrity in our time. Her now notorious installation My Bed was denounced by conservative critics as a scandal, but this and her other works have continued to attract ever larger audiences. Whether storming out of live television debates, talking about her abortions or modelling evening gowns for Vivienne Westwood, Tracey Emin makes headlines. Yet if Emin is now universally recognized as a media phenomenon, her work has also begun to attract serious critical attention. In The Art of Tracey Emin distinguished critics address her achievement in depth for the first time, tracing Emin's influences from Egon Schiele to Bruce Nauman and establishing her place in a wider tradition. They show that however raw and personal her work may seem to be, it actually represents a carefully mediated response to vital issues in culture and society.

Cornelia Parker
Cornelia Parker (b. 1956) is one of the most original and inventive artists working in Britain today. Her wide-ranging practice, chiefly in sculpture and installation, touches on the fragility of human experience and is rich with visual and literary allusions. This book is the first full survey to trace the development of Parkers career from the late 1970s to the present day, and includes work never previously published as well as extensive illuminating commentaries by the artist herself. Parker transforms everyday, ordinary objects into compelling works of art, often through acts of violence. She investigates the nature of matter, testing physical properties and playing on private and public meaning and value. Projects which have included blowing up a shed, steamrolling musical instruments and sending meteorites back into space have captured the public imagination since she first came to prominence in the 1990s. In this comprehensively illustrated book the artist takes the reader on a personal tour through her works. Beginning with the small-scale sculptures she made as a student, it charts works made in an array of materials from burnt cocaine and snake venom to silver dollars and gold teeth, alongside drawings, photographs, video pieces and installations. Parkers engaging commentaries describe her adventures with the unlikely institutions that have helped create her works, from the British Army to Colt Firearms, as well as her wide-ranging travels, from the funeral parlours of Sao Paulo to the crown-of-thorn workshops of Bethlehem. Organized chronologically, the book features five thematic essays by curator Iwona Blazwick, contextualizing the artists work and pointing to her key influences and interests, from abstraction and performance to archeology and psychoanalysis. The book features a foreword by renowned artist and activist Yoko Ono and an introduction by curator Bruce Ferguson focusing on Parkers fascination with matter. Supplemented by an up-to-date biography, bibliography and exhibition history, this is the definitive book on one of the most popular artists of our time.

Raymond Mason
Raymond Mason, the English sculptor and painter born in 1922, has lived and worked in Paris since 1946. A close friend of Giacometti, Balthus and Bacon, he has established an international reputation chiefly through a number of monumental works in Paris, Montreal, New York, Washington, and his home town of Birmingham. Although his large retrospectives in Britain and in France attracted record-breaking attendances, the fact of living abroad, and of following his own path in defiance of passing fashions, has prevented his full recognition as an original artist of his generation. Often conceived on a large scale, and concerned with a wide variety of subjects having universal appeal, his works continue the line of narrative art, and recover the long tradition of polychrome, figurative sculpture. His art as a whole is sustained by a vivid and coherent body of ideas expressed in numerous essays, and while reclaiming the past it with new sculptural forms, and explores the limits of realismn and of figuration itself. In this book devoted to Mason's work, the author raises questions about the nature of art, and about its place in contemporary experience. He offers several interpretations, and a reflection on the implications of Mason's practice and theory.
