Art Book: Sculpture
Written by Erika Doss, Wesla Hanson, Tin Ly.
Created in conjunction with the Plains Art Museum of Fargo, North Dakota
This book is a major reappraisal of the work of famed photo-realist sculptor Duane Hanson and of its cultural connections to the artist’s Midwestern roots. Beautifully designed, it offers a major new perspective on the artist and his work.
It includes a generous, illustrated catalog of his work to accompany an exhibition that has visited Fargo, North Dakota; Omaha, Nebraska; Windsor, Ontario, Canada; Columbus, Ohio; and Sarasota, Florida. Contributors include Erika Doss, the distinguished art historian, who connects Hanson to an American kind of social realism; Wesla Hanson, Duane Hanson’s widow, who offers a pictorial essay of never-before-seen photos from her personal collection; and Tin Ly, who worked with the sculptor as his assistant for over ten years.
