Manuel Neri and the Assertion of Modern Figurative Sculpture
Published by Anderson Collection at Stanford University and Stanford University Press
Representing the breadth of the artist’s oeuvre, this book offers insights into the development of Manuel Neri’s sculpture and a fresh perspective on his contributions to contemporary art. With approximately 400 color images, it captures Neri’s engagement with modernism, tradition, and humanity’s struggle to understand itself. Writings include a foreword by Jason Linetzky, Director of the Anderson Collection, an introduction by Alexander Nemerov, the department chair and Carl and Marilynn Thoma Provostial Professor in the Arts and Humanities, Stanford’s Department of Art & Art History, and essays by noted scholar Bruce Nixon which all illustrate Neri’s lifelong involvement with the most creative traditions to capture the modern age—in all its contradictions, vulnerabilities, and possibilities—in the enduring mirror of the human body.
