Notes: Focusing on everyday people as his subjects, Rosso portrayed fugitive physical or emotional states, employing innovative casting and modeling techniques in plaster, bronze and wax, his signature material. Medardo Rosso: Experiments in Light and Form features nearly 100 works of sculpture, drawing and photography, and explores Rosso's efforts to capture and manipulate light. It presents extensive installation photography, documenting the works on view within the variable natural and artificial light of the Pulitzer Arts Foundation building. The book also features original scholarly essays by the exhibition co-curators and other contributors, as well as a fully illustrated checklist presenting a selection of Rosso's lesser-known experiments in drawing and photography, in addition to some of his most celebrated sculptures. Exhibition: Pulitzer Arts Foundation, St. Louis, United States (11.11.2016 - 13.05.2017).
