The book highlights Monumental Sculpture on Broadway, Valdés’ recent public exhibition of monumental sculptures.

Born in 1942 in Valencia, Spain, the artist lives and works primarily in New York, New York. His art is included in the collections of institutions such as Fundación del Museo Guggenheim Bilbao, Bilbao, Spain; Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg, Germany; Moderna Museet Art, Stockholm, Sweden; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France; Museum of Modern Art, New York, New York; and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York.
