This publication focuses on a series of painted bronzes by British sculptor Rebecca Warren (born 1965). Her thin and knobbly figures, which knowingly reference canonical artists such as Giacometti, Rodin and de Kooning, are here given the deluxe treatment with work portraits from all four angles and installation-view foldouts.

Rebecca Warren's first monograph is chronological review of her career to date. Showing both key works and installation shots, (including the Turner Prize, Serpentine Gallery, the 54th Venice Biennale and numerous interntional solo exhibitions) her work is further contextualised with an essay by Bice Curiger, editor of Parkett. Warren's sculptures in clay, bronze and steel, ebb from figuration to abstraction, ranging from the amorphous to more clearly recognizable forms. Always evident in Warren's work is the negotiation between thought and process. Ideas and influences are filtered, distorted and often discarded as they find three-dimensional form. Her sculptures can be tender and droll, yet also aggressive in their depiction of the female form. Yet while she often manages to both invoke and skewer the work of familiar male artists such as Willem de Kooning, Alberto Giacometti and cartoonist R. Crumb, individually and collectively Warren's works form an entirely modern, complex and distinctive visual language. "She is no pasticher of the past," wrote Jonathan Jones in The Guardian, "but an original and formidable talent."

With her classically formal clay and bronze sculptures, London-based Rebecca Warren positions herself within the predominantly male figurative tradition, which includes Degas and Rodin, while maintaining the contemporary stance of questioning her predecessors' authority. Here she presents new works alongside well-known pieces from throughout her career.

This first monograph features Rebecca Warren's first U.S. solo show at Matthew Marks Gallery, where her rough, unfired clay works reconfigured works by an array of masters, among them Degas, Rodin, Boccioni, Picasso, Fontana and the German Expressionists. Warren connects to the work of more recent artists and their curvy muses in works like Helmut Crumb, whose thunder thighs and platform heels unmistakably refer to its titular
