Letters from H.C. Westermann. Selected and edited by Bill Barrette. Biographical sketch by Joanna Beall Westermann.
by [Illustrated Art Letters] Westermann, H.(orace) C.(lifford).

Publisher Information:
Timken Publishers, New York: 1988.

A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. Westermann was a highly influential and important American sculptor and printmaker whose art constituted a scathing commentary on militarism and materialism. His sculptures frequently incorporated traditional carpentry and marquetry techniques. From the late 1950s until his death in 1981, Westermann worked with a number of materials and formal devices to address a range of personal, literary, artistic, and pop-cultural references. The artistís sculptural oeuvre is distinguished by its intricate craftsmanship, in which wood, metal, glass, and other materials are laboriously hand-tooled, and by its ability to convey an offbeat, often humorous, individualistic sensibility. This collection of his illustrated letters provide an illuminated biography of surprising directness.
