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

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 405 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 It exclusively brings together selections from his previously unpublished correspondence with critics, including Clement Greenberg and Michael Fried, and his fellow artists.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are detailed both through an engaging chronological examination of his entire development and through previously unpublished documentary images of the exhibitions, places and personalities that influenced his work"--Bookjacket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 by Anthony Caro( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and Spanish and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anthony Caro is widely regarded as Britain's greatest living sculptor and has enjoyed an international reputations since the early 1960s. 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. In 1960 he began making purely abstract sculptures constructed and welded in steel, comprising beams, girders and other elements painted in bright colours. The exhibition of these works at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1963 caused a sensation and heralded a revolution in sculpture. Within a short period conventional ideas about materials, method, surface, scale, form and space were overturned by his radical reworking of all these elements."--Jacket

Anthony Caro : interior and exterior by Karen Wilkin( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 237 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 : catalogue raisonné by Dieter Blume( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in German and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthony Caro : presence by Paul Moorhouse( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 206 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
Anthony Caro : drawing in space by Mary Reid( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the course of his extensive career, Anthony Caro has undertaken several different trajectories in his sculpture. One consistent thread has been his remarkable ability to create evocative drawings in space. In this book Mary Reid discusses Caro's extended engagement with line in three dimensions, tracing characteristics of weightlessness, relationship to the ground, colour, movement, environment and even geographical location." "In the late 1950s, Caro was becoming dissatisfied with his figurative sculpture and was searching for ways to push his practice in new directions. Following the advice of the pre-eminent American critic Clement Greenberg, Caro set working in clay aside and began experimenting with common building materials such as steel girders and I-beams. The results revolutionised the very concept of sculpture. In turn these heavy initial experiments quickly moved to very linear, tensile embodiments of space and gesture. Over the course of the next 50 years this engagement with line has remained a constant within Caro's field of vision, continually shifting and morphing with each new surprising innovation in scale, surface, material, content and form." "Mary Reid's text lays the foundations for a wider understanding of Caro's extraordinary sculptures, from which new interpretations can spring forth. The accompanying plates serve to highlight the development and multiple transitions of this important aspect of the sculptor's long and impressive career."--Jacket
Pablo Picasso : the legacy of a genius( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring the breadth of the artist's achievements through the insights and speculations of fellow artists, close relatives, historians, and critics, the film centers on thirteen key works which vividly represent the major turning points in Picasso's career. Robert Rosenblum, an art historian and a noted authority on Picasso, introduces us to these key works. Dominique Bozo, founder of the Musée Picasso, visits the places in Paris and the south of France where the artist lived and worked, and discusses the relationship between his milieu and art. Critic Clement Greenberg and Picasso's biographer Roland Penrose present their views on many important issues in Picasso's career. Several generations of painters and sculptors have had to contend with the scope of Picasso's vision. Among others, Henry Moore, Matta, Anthony Caro, David Hockney, George Segal, and Roy Lichtenstein comment on the ways in which Picasso's oeuvre has affected their own artistic sensibilities. Pablo Picasso: the legacy of a genius is an assessment of the 20th century's best known artist and his vast achievements
