From Library Journal:
Conner and Rosenkranz here intend to showcase the smaller studio works of 20 American sculptors, once widely known for larger pieces commissioned for world's fairs, expositions, etc., whose large public works obscured their studio pieces or whose reputations have simply diminished over time. They largely succeed in reacquainting us with these sculptors. The photography of the sculptures, some in color, is outstanding and essential for placing both the artists and their work within an American tradition of sculpture purchased for the home environment. Showing the shift in scale from conceptions of grandeur to service on a tabletop also demonstrates the creative range of these artists. Recommended for larger academic, museum, and public libraries.
