Barcelona an Open-Air Sculpture Gallery

Luis Permanyer, Author, Rizzoli, Author, Melba Levick, Illustrator Rizzoli International Publications $65 (299p) ISBN 978-0-8478-1554-8
Barcelona, as the title of this magnificent album implies, is a veritable open-air sculpture gallery. Pieces by Antoni Tapies, Richard Serra, Ellsworth Kelly, Beverly Pepper and Anthony Caro play an integral role in the urban design. With 321 color photographs and a highly readable text by Barcelona art critic Permanyer, this showcase reproduces an astonishing array of boldly original works, among them Joan Miro's Woman and Bird festooned with glazed mosaics, Andre Nagel's spectacular and amusing St. George's Dragon, Eduardo Chilliada's monumental yet delicate In Praise of Water , Francisco Lopez Hernandez's Drowned Woman and Roy Shiffrin's epic David and Goliath, paying homage to the International Brigades that fought Fascism. Gracing the site of the 1992 Summer Olympics is Aiko Miyawaki's forest of concrete pillars crowned with swaying steel filaments that trace patterns in the air, a monument to continuous change. (June)
