Anthony Caro : quest for the new sculpture by Ian Barker( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anthony Caro is internationally acknowledged as one of the greatest modernist sculptors of our time. His radical approach heralded a revolution in sculpture. Through his work and teaching he freed sculpture from 'the monolith'. This landmark publication is the first to present a comprehensive overview of the artist's achievements to date, as seen through a wealth of fascinating archival and contemporary sources. It exclusively brings together selections from his previously unpublished correspondence with critics, including Clement Greenberg and Michael Fried, and his fellow artists. The story of Caro's quest for a new language for sculpture is told through these extracts from letters and interviews. Contemporary critical reaction to Caro's sculpture is also traced through selected press cuttings from his principal exhibitions and other major events of his career. Caro's working processes and views on sculpture are detailed both through an engaging chronological examination of his entire development and through previously unpublished documentary images of the exhibitions, places and personalities that influenced his work"--Bookjacket

Anthony Caro : drawing in space by Mary Reid( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the early 1980s, Anthony Caro, first acclaimed for his linear, open steel constructions, has been preoccupied with a conception of sculpture as enclosed space and as metaphor for enclosed space. For the first time, Karen Wilkin examines the sculptor's fascination with questions about interior and exterior, volume and mass that verge on the architectural." "Work emerging from Caro's studio over the last two decades has emphasised density and containment. Wilkin reveals the evolution of this approach from its seeds in his early figurative sculptures of the 1950s, through his internationally celebrated steel works of the 1960s and 1970s, to his recent large-scale sculptures. These culminate in Caro's Chapel of Light, Bourbourg, Pas-de-Calais, where he was commissioned to bring a damaged 13th-century apse back to contemporary life. Caro treated the entire choir as a mixed-media sculptural volume, animated by his additions of wooden towers, reliefs and an enormous baptismal font." "Karen Wilkin draws on her vast knowledge of Caro's work, based on 30 years of experiencing his sculptures directly, visiting the studio and holding conversations with the artist. She reaches out to new audiences for his work while at the same time offering new insights and interpretations to the specialist."--Jacket

Anthony Caro : presence by Paul Moorhouse( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book surveys Caro's free-standing, floor-based, constructed, abstract sculptures from 1960 to the present. The unifying theme of these works is that they answer Caro's imperative 'to make something that was as important in a room as a person'. The author explores the idea of presence in Caro's sculpture, focusing on the way that in order to invest sculpture with an independent existence and self-contained reality, it was necessary for Caro to purge it of figurative references. As a result, Caro has created sculptures that are 'in the world' but not 'of the world': they have their own individual character, but they exist at a remove, purely for the purpose of contemplation and employing a language of abstract, expressive shape." "Paul Moorhouse's text surveys the development of this central and defining strand of Caro's work, following its successive phases with a focus on distinct themes, including: the idea of presence, the break with 'pretence' and figuration, expression without description, the connection with the human body, the relationship with painting and music, the articulation of space, the connectedness of parts, the denial of mass and the illusion of weightlessness, the idea of place as presence, balance and extension, containment, the use of found material, and, more recently, the admission of semi-figural, allusive elements." "The book outlines the scope and significance of Caro's achievement in liberating and extending the language of sculpture in the late 20th and early 21st century, and in establishing new realities for sculpture for generations to come."--Jaquette
