The Metropolitan Museum of Art has long been renowned for its collection of American sculpture, in particular its world-famous Neoclassical marbles and Beaux-Arts bronzes. This volume contains eight papers presented at a symposium held at the Museum on October 26, 2001, upon the publication of American Sculpture in The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The contributors, who include art historians, museum professionals, and independent scholars, offer a fascinating cross section of current thematic interests and scholarly approaches to American sculpture. Each contributor takes as his or her starting point a sculpture or group of sculptures in the Metropolitan’s collection.

Thayer Tolles, associate curator, Department of American Paintings and Sculpture, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, is also the editor of American Sculpture in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, available from Yale University Press.
