Bessie Potter Vonnoh: Sculptor of Women provides an intimate and engaging encounter with one of the most widely respected sculptors of her day. Her work commanded admiration for her fluid and suggestive modeling, graceful lines, and sculptural form. In the principal essay, Julie Aronson explores how, by concentrating on sculpture for domestic settings that expertly combined naturalism with elegance, Vonnoh negotiated a male-dominated field to create a pathway to professional success and made high-quality sculpture accessible to a wider audience.

In an essay that examines Vonnoh’s relationship with her foundries and scrutinizes bronze castings, Janis Conner demystifies baffling issues of authenticity and quality in turn-of-the-century bronzes. This copiously illustrated book, indispensable for all sculpture enthusiasts, accompanied the first exhibition since 1930 dedicated to the art of Bessie Potter Vonnoh.
