Erwin Hauer: Continua--Architectural Screens and Walls
Erwin HauerISBN: 1568984553;
Book DescriptionIf we rarely think of walls as works of mesmerizing beauty, Erwin Hauer can hardly be blamed. Erwin Hauer: Continua resurrects the extraordinary but little-known work of this Austrian-born sculptor, whose designs of perforated and modularstructures are symphonies of measured elegance. Built in Austria, Canada, Italy, Mexico, Holland, the Antilles, Venezuela, and the U.S., Hauer's architectural walls and screens caused a stir when they were erected in the 1950s, but have since been lost in time. This book gathers stunning photographs of these works, many of them now destroyed or no longer accessible. Hauer has exhibited widely in the United States and Europe and his sculptures can be found in many public and corporate collections, including those of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Chicago Art Institute, the Wadsworth Atheneum, the Benson Sculpture Park in Loveland, CO, and the Museum of the National Academy of Design.
