Claude Mercier (French, born in 1924) is one of France's leading contemporary sculptors. He is best known for his bronze sculptures with infinitely intertwined convex and concave abstract shapes; his singular style has been a vital source of inspiration for subsequent generations. For the first time, the majority of his work has been brought together in a book, commented by Marie-Odile Van Caeneghem, a specialist in contemporary art. Monumental sculptures, reliefs, drawings and jewellery all the forms that Claude Mercier has explored are put in perspective here.
