Illustrated with color and black and white images throughout, this Important monograph on American Sculptor Doris Caesar, focuses on her original sculpting style and her choice of subject matter: her figures were nude emaciated women of elongated height that reflect the realities of human existence and a woman's role in the society of her times. According to Martin H. Bush, author of her biography :"By using long craning necks that culminate in pitifully small heads, she dramatizes the troubles of day-to-day living and the harsh realities of life. Yet emerging from this seeming awkwardness is an inner beauty, a kind of intuitive strength in the face of pain, and courage in the face of adversity." This thought provoking book brings a scholarly eye to the impressionistic art of this female sculptor and pioneer.
