Detail from El Greco's
Portrait of a Sculptor

Whether working with stone, wood, metal or other media, creating new forms from existing material - sculpting - has been a means of artistic expression since prehistoric times.

While ancient sculptures may not seem to have much in common with many of today's pieces, the artist as interpreter of shape and form is a theme that runs through the art form in all cultures.

Where the names of sculptors from antiquity remain a mystery they are simply referred to as "unknown master." Individual sculptors who are known and have left their mark on art history include:
