Enrique Alférez: Sculptor

Enrique Alférez was born in Zacatecas, Mexico, but for almost seventy years, he worked in New Orleans, where he left a lasting imprint through his figurative sculptures, monuments, and fountains. Katie Bowler Young has gained unprecedented access to Alférez’s personal and family holdings and has crafted a poetic evocation of the life and work of this preeminent artist. The book features more than one hundred images of Alférez’s work in New Orleans and beyond.
