Four essays and a catalog of 179 sculptures and drawings exhibited in Europe in 1988 give serious treatment to all the works of an artist best known for the controversy over the work Titled Arc in Manhattan. The book's grainy black-and-white plates give a good feel for the gritty, abrasive quality of Serra's sculpture; among the essays, Douglas Crimp's on the artist's public work is particularly good. More up to date than Rosalind Krauss's Richard Serra/Sculpture ( LJ 6/1/86), this book is now the most comprehensive view of Serra's work available.
