It is the first work of its kind to consider the varieties of fired clay sculpture, especially in the context of the sculptural process. Whenever possible, clay models have been juxtaposed with finished works in order to show changes between a sculptor s initial concept and the final product. Over eighty objects are considered, ranging from drawings and sketch models to enamelled terracottas and marbles. The entries are supplemented by a series of essays, addressing major aspects of clay sculpture from the Renaissance to Neo-classicism- there is also a survey of recent information gleaned from the conservation of terracotta sculpture.Author Biography: Bruce Boucher is professor of the history of art at University College London and visiting fellow in the research department at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
