Hardcover with illustrated boards, 21 by 30.2 cm, 208 pp., heavily illus. in black and white. Text is in Dutch and English. Very good with only light yellowing around the edges of the leaves. Inscribed and signed by Kiewiet on the ffep, dated 2000. Bert Kiewiet (1908-2008) was a well-known Dutch sculptor whose most famous works depict scenes of everyday Dutch life. This volume not only takes a short look at the artist’s childhood and evolution as an artist, but it also presents an expansive view of his work, from his early experimentation with Surrealism and folk art, to the larger-than-life cast bronze sculptures that are his trademark. This volume includes two copies of a card-stock, single-fold promotional brochure that depicts eight of Kiewiet’s sculptures in color.
