"Often cited but never before reprinted, Gosse's essays sought to demystify sculpture and to promote its patronage and appreciation. Martina Droth's introduction and commentary contextualize the essays in their era, providing insight into the world of late-Victorian sculpture. David J. Getsy's afterword connects the essays' themes to the present, offering a resonant perspective on the sculpture of today."--Back cover.
