About this title:

Synopsis: The brilliant mid-century modern artist, Harry Bertoia (1915 1978), left a rich legacy of art and design, each with an intriguing history. And yet, while just about everyone has seen the Diamond Chair, few can identify Harry Bertoia as its designer. Even fewer recognize the Bertoia sculptures and other monumental pieces at various public venues. This important volume, illustrated with over 200 revealing photos, allows easy identification and appreciation of Bertoia's work. Written with insights that only a daughter could offer, this impressive book also reveals the complex man behind the fascinating art. Personal letters and family anecdotes offer a deep look into the life and motivations of this profound metal artist. Not only will readers get a peek at the behind-the-scenes skirmishes involved in making art, but will also gain insight into the philosophy as well as technical innovation of this dynamic artist.

About the Author: Celia, writer and lecturer, lives in Montana with her husband Kyle. Skiing, running, hiking and gardening only add to her impassioned mission to further the legacy of her father, Harry Bertoia.
