Imogen Stuart, Sculptor
A book on one of Ireland's foremost sculptors. Brian Fallon describes Imogen Stuart as 'a Woman of Two Worlds - German by birth, upbringing and artistic training, but also Irish by adoption, involvement and sympathy'. The elder daughter of Germany's leading art critic of the Thirties, and a pupil of Otto Hitzberger, she moved to Ireland a few years after the war and has been a professional artist all her working life. This book includes an essay by Brian Fallon; an appreciation by Peter Harbison; and a checklist of the artist's work. Fr Enda McDonagh writes the foreword. The book contains 44 pages of illustrations printed full colour.
