Introduction to Sculpture

"An orientation to the art of sculpture, illustrated entirely with works from the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Art. The objects provide a survey of major stylistic periods in Western art from the medieval, Renaissance, and baroque periods to contemporary twentieth-century works.

Footage shows a sculptor demonstrating techniques: carving in marble, molding clay, casting bronze, and welding steel."
