Volume III


Volume III: Sculptors and Sculpture, 1600-2000

Volume III will foreground the position of sculpture within the visual arts in Ireland and recognize the contribution that Irish sculptors have made over centuries to the development of the art form both within and outside the country. An introductory essay will explore the changing nature of Irish sculpture over 400 years and detail the development from the long- established traditional forms of sculpture to the more exploratory methods of the late twentieth century. The processes involved in making sculpture will also be considered. The A-Z of artists (approximately 250) will incorporate biographical, analytical and critical material, and will be followed by approximately 45 thematic essays to augment and contextualise the biographical information. Picture essays will be interspersed throughout the volume.
