Description/Abstract

This article is an amalgamation of two pieces written by Professor Schmeckebier: "The Art of Mestrovic", which prefaced the catalogue of the spring 1984 exhibition of Mestrovic's work at The Joe and Emily Lowe Art Gallery at Syracuse University, and an as yet unpublished paper entitled "Mestrovic as a Sculptor in America," which he gave at Columbia University in November 1982 at a seminar sponsored by The Institute on East Central Europe.

The article details Mestrovic's life and contributions to art, whose monumental sculptures are on the same level as other greats such as Rodin and Michelangelo.
