Full Description

Most people are familiar with the imposing bronze staue in Rotterdam’s city centre. Known as The Destroyed City, it is considered worldwide to be one of the most impressive monuments to the victims of World War II. It is so well known that, unusually for a statue on a public space, many people even know the name of its creator: Zadkine. But who was Zadkine? And what else did he do? This book provides a comprehensive overview of the work of this Parisian master of modernism, who, with his fellow artists like Picasso, Brancusi, and Lipchitz, transformed the face of Western sculpture forever. Zadkine’s capacity for continually reinventing himself and developing new forms and shapes in response to the changing world around him marks him out as one of the greatest artists of his day. The book focuses particularly on Zadkine’s bond with the Netherlands, where his collectors and those who commissioned his work often counted as his friends.

Text in English and Dutch.
