Robert Engman (Hardback)

Nancy Schiffer

-  

Robert Engman's distinctive sculptures developed from his training and fellowship with some of the mid-twentieth century's most renowned art teachers and famous sculptors. As shown here in over 600 color photos, his beautiful curved, minimal surfaces and clean abstract designs evolved as he sought his own voice with bronze, steel, aluminum, and plastics. Engman's commissions stand in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, and Jerusalem. They are also found in the Hirshhorn, MOMA, Whitney, and numerous college museums. He was a professor at Yale and Penn, significantly influencing today's American sculptors. Engman continues to explore the relationships of planes and produces dynamic sculptures in series, with warped surfaces of curvilinear shapes. This book's insightful text, organized chronologically, exposes the influences, opportunities, experiences, and challenges he met. Major chapters cover his training, teaching, and sculpture, with a timeline, resume, bibliography, and index. The photos reveal his stages of development and progression of sculpture construction. Robert Engman's warm character is shared with readers to reflect his teaching style as a popular professor and resident artist.
