English. Fine.'The art of Richard Serra is internationally admired for its powerful material qualities and its searching exploration of the relationship between the work, the viewer and the site. Indeed, since his emergence in the mid-1960s, Serra is widely understood to have radicalized and extended the very definition of sculpture. Simply the most complete view to date of the work of this pre-eminent figure in the art of our time, Richard Serra Sculpture: Forty Years offers a detailed presentation and documentation of his entire career, from his early experiments with materials like rubber, neon and lead to the environmentally scaled steel works of recent years, including three monumental new sculptures created for the exhibition that the book accompanies.' (from the blurb). The Museum of Modern Art catalogue includes an interview with Serra himself, three essays about his work, a section of 326 plates showing Serra's work, a catalogue of the works in the exhibition, and a select bibliography and exhibition history. All this makes this one of the most important and comprehensive titles on Serra.
