About the Book
In the 160 page book, lavishly illustrated with over 100 full page high-quality photos of Motro’s sculptures, the reader will explore the unexpected influences of his mother's wartime experiences, the making and unmaking of a media executive, and the disparate phases of his artistic development. His re-entry into college life as an art student is described along with the circumstances that led to his epiphany that he is a sculptor. This volume includes his primitive working sketches and pre-cast clay originals juxtaposed to his final bronze pieces to create a true sense of the artist in his studio. Although best known for his whimsical “Wine Lovers” series, Motro’s entire body of work is on display, illuminating the wealth of his imagination, his keen sense of humor, and the diversity of his talent. This publication represents a tremendous resource for both professional sculptors and students, and a treasure trove for the many current and prospective collectors of his artwork.
