In "19th-Century Sculpture," H.W. Janson presents a vivid panorama of diverse artists, inventors, statesmen, and observers. He revises our comfortable stereotypes of the fathers of liberty, of imperial conquest, of Victorians of all countries. For scholars and students familiar with his work, and for those for whom this will be a first acquaintance, this book will provide an unforgettable contact with a bracingly original mind at the peak of its powers.
