Christian Petersen: Sculptor

Lea Rosson DeLong
Through his twenty-one years as sculptor-in-residence and art faculty member, Christian Petersen (Danish-American, 1885-1961) literally changed the face of the Iowa State's campus. Many decades – and thousands of students, faculty members, administrators, and visitors – later, Petersen's sculptures and murals still adorn the campus and influence the hearts and minds of all who view them. The illustrations in this publication capture the beauty of Petersen’s artistic gift while the text unfolds his personal story and places the sculptor within the context of twentieth-century American art.

Included are:
  • Illustrations of the artist’s most important sculptures, preparatory models, and drawings

  • Excerpts from the Art on Campus Poetry Collection, commissioned work based on Petersen’s art

  • Petersen’s interpretation of America during the turbulent times of the Depression through World War II

  • A catalogue of the artist work

Christian Petersen, Sculptor contains contributions by Patricia Lounsbury Bliss, Charles C. Eldredge, Dana L. Michels, Linda Merk-Gould, and Lynette L. Pohlman.

Hardcover, 242 pages, 150 images, 8.75 x 11.25 inches
