Rickey's fascinating sculptural oeuvre spans a fifty-three-year period (1949-2002) and is incredibly diverse. This book is concerned exclusively with the early indoor sculptures from the first twenty-five years of Rickey's output. With over 380 photos covering the artist's early innovations, we get an intimate and more complete picture of his artistic diversity than ever before. This book lays a firm foundation to an understanding of the artist's creative intentions, and carefully categorizes the works into 35 chapters. Many of the works are published here for the first time.
