This is a short, illustrated dictionary of the terms most commonly used by artists and art historians when discussing the making of Western sculpture. The book answers questions, such as: what is a socle?; what are the steps in bronze casting?; and what is a terra-cotta? It offers definitions of the techniques, processes and materials used in the production of post-classical European sculpture. Explanations of the technical terms most frequently encountered by students and museum visitors are presented in a portable format. With numerous illustrations drawn from the National Collection of Sculpture at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the J. Paul Getty Museum, this volume should be a useful reference work for all those who wish to increase their enjoyment and understanding of the art of sculpture.
