Description

Regarded as the greatest British artist of his generation and represented in museum collections all over the world, Anthony Caro revolutionized sculpture in the 1960s, by taking the radical step of removing the plinth and placing his work directly on the ground not only changed our relationship with the artwork, but the direction of sculpture itself.

This beautifully designed book includes a comprehensive survey of Caro's work over a period of more than half a century – ranging from his time as Henry Moore's assistant in the early 1950s right up until his death in 2013.

About the Author

Anthony Caro played a pivotal role in the development of twentieth‐century sculpture. After studying sculpture at the Royal Academy Schools in London, he worked as assistant to Henry Moore. He came to public attention with a show at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1963, where he exhibited large abstract sculptures brightly painted and standing directly on the ground so that they engaged the spectator on a one‐to‐one basis. This was a radical departure from the way sculpture had hitherto been seen and paved the way for future developments in three‐dimensional art.
