The exhibition Germaine Richier presents more than forty important sculptures from the seminal postwar French artist Germaine Richier. Richier’s sculptures are presented alongside a selection of photographs by her contemporary Brassaï, who documented the artist’s studio and captured the defying power of her work. This fully illustrated exhibition catalogue is one of the first scholarly studies of the artist’s work ever published in the United States. The book features original essays by Sarah Wilson and Anna Swinbourne. It also includes the reproduction of a 1953 text by André Pieyre de Mandiargues, never before translated in English, as well as important archival documents from the Germaine Richier Estate.
