Sculpture Studies in Honour of Christian Theuerkauff

Since the 1960s, renowned art historian Christian Theuerkauff has conducted groundbreaking research into small sculptures by both established and lesser-known artists —some identified by Theuerkauff for the first time. His works are today widely considered to be standard references in the field.
 
In honor of Theuerkauff’s seventy-fifth birthday, Regine Marth and Marjorie Trusted have brought together a diverse group of art historians from Germany, the United States, Great Britain, Italy, France, Spain, and Scandinavia to present the latest insights on sculpture and applied art from the sixteenth to the nineteenth century. In view of Theuerkauff’s wide-ranging interests, the twenty-eight essays—complemented by ample illustrations—consider a similarly broad range of topics, including ivory sculptures and carvings, clay pieces, and marble and bronze works. Among the artists included are Gert van Egen, Francis van Bossuit, Balthasar Griebmann, David Le Marchand, Jean Cavalier, and Simon Troger.
