Man of Steel
The Richard Serra retrospective, opening Sunday, arrives at the Museum of Modern Art virtually a foregone matter, in the way that Picasso and Matisse shows arrived in the old days. It's a landmark, by a titan of sculpture, one of the last great modernists in an age of minor talents, mad money and so much meaningless art. At 67 Mr. Serra is still nudging the language of abstraction, constructing ever more awesome mazes of looming Cor-Ten steel.

Richard Serra Sculpture: 40 Years opens this Sunday and runs through Sept. 10 at the Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53rd Street, Manhattan.
