Indisputably, Manuel Neri is one of the most important sculptors of the human figure in the last century. His bronze reliefs, maquettes and full figures as well as drawings and a marble head. The partial figure emerges and recedes as this master creates some of his most beautiful work ever. Long recognized as an artist who is equally successful in a variety of mediums, Neri's bronze reliefs, maquettes and full figures as well as his drawings and marble sculptures reveal his understanding of - and passion for - the female form in all its variety. Neri is in the permanent collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, The National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution Washington, DC, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and many other private and public collections.
