'Life & Work of Enrico Glicenstein', authored by art historian Charlotte Sholod, begins with a biography of the sculptor, articulating his wide travels throughout Europe and his immigration to the United States in 1928. The story of his long and influential career as a prolific sculptor is accompanied by an 80-page catalogue featuring more than 250 of the works sculpted by the artist between 1896 and 1940. Born in 1870, Glicenstein is one of the pioneering sculptors responsible for reviving the art of direct carving and is an artist who adheres to techniques that respect the integrity of the medium and material. His major contribution to twentieth-century art is the adoption of direct carving in wood, rather than the practice of primarily casting in bronze. His works are in collections throughout Europe and America and include The Polish Museum of America; Rapperswil Castle, Rapperswil; National Museum, Krakow, Poland; Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Israel; Holocaust Memorial Museum, Washington, DC; the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, NY; and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC.
