Anthony Caro

£6.99

Product description

Anthony Caro (born 1924) is widely regarded as 'Britain's greatest living sculptor' (The Guardian, 2003) and has enjoyed an international reputation since the early 1960s. This publication accompanies a major retrospective exhibition of Caro's work at Tate Britain in January 2005. Caro studied at Regent Street Polytechnic and the Royal Academy Schools, before working as Henry Moore's assistant between 1951 and 1953. His work changed radically following a visit to America in 1959, when he met the sculptor David Smith, the painter Kenneth Noland and the critic Clement Greenberg. In 1960 he began making purely abstract sculptures constructed and welded in steel, comprising beams, girders and other found elements painted in bright colours. Although best known for his work in steel, Caro has also worked in bronze, wood, lead, ceramics and paper, on both large and intimate scales. Since the 1980s, the range of Caro's work has increased, encompassing 'sculpitecture' (sculpture that the viewer enters and explores internally); large-scale works that allude to the language of classical architecture; and sculptures that respond to earlier works of art by such masters as Rubens, Manet and Matisse. This extensively illustrated book includes an overview of Caro's career by the exhibition curator Paul Moorhouse, as well as critical essays by Micheal Fried and Dave Hickey.

The condition of the book is brilliant, however, on the bottom of the front cover there is a small crease. The pages are lovely and clear and no marks.
