About This Book

Beverly Pepper has spent her lifetime at the forefront of monumental sculpture worldwide. From her first twenty-foot sculpture in Spoleto in 1962 to her four forty-foot columns in the Federal Plaza, New York, her work ranges in varying scales across three continents—many collected here for the first time. As a pioneer in the use of diverse industrial metals, she was among the first artists to work in Cor-ten steel (1965), as well as casting sculpture in ductile iron. 

This stunning monograph includes her latest environmental projects and  other monumental works.
