Distributed by University of Exeter Press.
The art of George Kastriotis moves against a background of a Greek-inspired symbolism. It is dominated by the female form in its various manifestations, serving as an allegory for natural phenomena, though busts and other subjects are also found.
Inheriting the Archaising tradition from his master, Bourdelle, Kastriotis went on to create a personal version of Academic realism, which he combined with his invention of a new material, his special plaster, a cement of his own devising that he used to perfect his compositions. His sculptures are now to be found in several Museums, Galleries and Collections, as well as in public areas in Greece and Cyprus. Greek and English text. 121 b&w illustrations.
