  • A broad range of sources are used, from exhibition reviews to interviews, reminiscences and correspondence
  • This book builds on existing publications by clearly defining their limitations and how gender specific sculpture's history has been to date
  • Thematically organized, the book covers an unusually broad range of sculptural practice, such as domestic objects for the home and garden, personal and war memorials, portraits, the body, statuettes, architectural and ecclesiastical work
