From the introductory essay: "Commentators are often more comfortable with artists whom they can easily box, but Marisol defied such expectations. Nevertheless, there is a thread that ties her work together. It is, as Baudelaire suggested, an ability to engage sympathetically with the world around her." This publication was produced in conjunction with an exhibition of Marisol's sculptural work held at the Neuberger Museum of Art in New York June 17 to September 2, 2001.
