The authors (both former museum directors in Amsterdam) of this beautifully illustrated guide take you on a personal tour of the most exceptional artworks found in six spectacular sculpture gardens around the globe.
Ernst Veen has travelled extensively to look at art in the course of his career. In far-flung sculpture gardens, he was drawn to monumental works which were created for natural surroundings, marvelling at the way the art resides in the landscape, and how it transforms the landscape. Along with Gijs van Tuijl (and photographer Paul Kramer) he has written an inspiring guide to these stunning works of art.
The sculpture gardens they visit are: Storm King Art Center, in New Windsor, Mountainville, USA; Fattoria di Celle/Collezione Gori, in Santomato di Pistoa, Italy; Gibbs Farm, in Kaipara Harbour, New Zealand; Instituto Inhotim, in Brumadinho, Brazil; Chateau Lacoste, in Aix-en-Provence, France; Ekebergparken, in Oslo, Norway.
