Excavating the Archaic: Paul Manship

Why were early twentieth century artists so attracted to Greek archaic sculpture and why weren’t others before them? Susan Rather, a professor of art history at the University of Texas, explores the phenomenon of modern archaism with particular attention to Paul Manship, a sculptor who skillfully negotiated the yawning gap between tradition and modernity in the United States around 1913.
