Leithe-Jasper, Manfred.
Renaissance Master Bronzes from the Collection of the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna.

Washington Sacal Books, in association with Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service: 1986.

"No art form represents the Renaissance with greater eloquence than the bronze statuettes. It was essentially an intimate form, conceived in small scale yet splendid proportions, vigorously wrought and encouraging close examination. The collection of statuettes in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna is among the chief glories of one of the greatest museums in the world. Many of these unique and fascinating works of art have never left the Museum, nor the Imperial collections which preceded it, since their acquisition, which was sometimes direct from the artists themselves".

Hardcover. 8.5"x11", 304 pages, many color and some black & white illustrations, dust jacket. Fine.
