Shaping New Zealand Sculpture
This book presents a sketch of the life and work of this 'sculptor's sculptor' (1887–1977) who as a teacher and a practitioner inspired several generations of New Zealand artists but has been neglected by scholars. Mark Stocker traces the development of Shurrock's work from late Victorian-influenced symbolism to stylish, streamlined Art Deco and beyond.
This title contains many black-and-white photographs and 13 colour plates showing sculptures and prints by Shurrock, as well as the artist at work. It also includes a bibliography and catalogue of exhibits.
