Painter and sculptor Menashe Kadishman is one of Israel’s most important artists, and his famous sculptures can be found the world over in museums, private collections, and public spaces. This volume presents twenty of Kadishman’s most important works with full-color illustrations and accompanying text. Best known for his rolled steel sculptures dealing with the natural world—and in particular the interconnectedness of man, animals, and the environment—Kadishman has created many highly recognizable and sometimes distressing works that have figured prominently at, among other international venues, the Documenta IV and the various bienniales. Rounding out this exemplary overview of an exceptional artist’s work are a biography and a complete list of exhibitions.
