Bien que l. a. sculpture soit née avant l. a. peinture, elle a longtemps été considérée comme un basic complément de l'architecture, le plus ancien des trois arts majeurs. Utilisant les mêmes matériaux (bois, pierre, et marbre), elle semblait n'être faite que pour servir d'ornementation à cette dernière. Elle a pu cependant imposer peu à peu sa valeur propre et son autonomie.Cette indépendance est venue avec le besoin de représenter le corps humain. L'homme admirait d'abord l'univers dans son entier. Mais il se tourna ensuite vers los angeles contemplation de son propre corps, qu'il perçut comme le seul able, parmi toutes les formes de l. a. nature, de correspondre pleinement à son esprit et ses aspirations. Il s'agissait toutefois d'un corps d'une beauté supéririeure, régi par des lois de share et de symétrie, un corps idéal, réinventé en fait par le travail des sculpteurs ! C'est ainsi que naquirent une longue culture et évolution de l. a. sculpture. Cet ouvrage suggest au lecteur 23 000 ans de sculpture et plus de a hundred and twenty exemples parmi les plus belles sculptures du monde : de l'art préhistorique à Henry Moore, sans oublier los angeles statuaire égyptienne, Michel-Ange ou Niki de Saint-Phalle.
