On the occasion of a touring exhibition of this Scandinavian artist’s work, this book gorgeously depicts the sculptures that led to his world renown, with essays on his life and work as well as his impressive home Millesgården in Sweden. Milles (1875-1955) was classically trained and his early work displays the influence of ancient Greek and Roman sculpture, in addition to the influence of Auguste Rodin, his teacher and mentor. Because he created numerous public works in the U.S., citizens from cities across the country still delight in his sculptures with their slightly abstracted human forms that convey a fanciful, perhaps Nordic, sense of the spirituality in his mythological, religious and imaginative subjects.
