The Patsy R. and Raymond D. Nasher Collection is one of the finest collections of modern and contemporary sculpture in the world. Remarkable for its uniformly high quality as well as the depth of its representation of key artists, the collection spans more than 100 years, from the pioneering late 19th-century work of Paul Gauguin, Auguste Rodin, and Medardo Rosso to the contemporary developments of Magdalena Abakanowicz, Tony Cragg, Claes Oldenburg, and Richard Serra, among others.Surveying many of the most important sculptural developments of the past century, this volume lavishly illustrates 136 works by 58 artists. Particularly notable is the in-depth presentation of such masters as Alexander Calder, Raymond Duchamp-Villon, Alberto Giacometti, Henri Matisse, Joan MirĂ³, Pablo Picasso, and David Smith; groupings of multiple works allow a broad picture of each artist's achievement.An interview with Raymond Nasher by Steven A. Nash, associate director and chief curator, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, recounts the history of the collection.
