"This book, which accompanies the first major retrospective exhibition in America of Bacon's paintings since his death in 1992, will give uninhibited voice to the thoughts of three prominent scholars of his art. Art historians Dennis Farr and Sally Yard, and Bacon's friend and biographer Michael Peppiatt discuss their views of the artist's intense and unsettling body of work, introducing a wealth of material that sheds new light on his creative life and working methods. Accompanying the essays are three historic interviews with the artist by Michael Peppiatt. Finally, Dennis Farr provides authoritative and illuminating discussion of each work in the exhibition."--Jacket

"Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003) was one of the leading British sculptors of his generation. This illustrated catalogue raisonne of his sculpture is published in a revised and expanded edition which incorporates Chadwick's complete sculptural oeuvre up to his death in 2003 and all known additions and updates to the catalogue information on his work to the end of 2005." "Chadwick began his career as an architectural draughtsman, but after the Second World War he took up sculpture without any formal training. He initially concentrated on mobiles, and these were followed by rough-finished metal structures and figure sculptures. He established his international reputation in 1956, when he won the International Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale. He consistently worked in welded iron and was constantly intrigued by human and animal forms: no matter how abstract the sculpture became at times, it was always firmly rooted in a deep understanding of the natural world." "This indispensable reference book includes a comprehensive list of Chadwick's exhibitions, the public collections he is represented in, and a full biography, alongside the fully illustrated complete catalogue of his sculpture. The introductory essay by Dennis Farr, which draws on interviews with the artist, examines Chadwick's development as a sculptor and his sculptural techniques."--BOOK JACKET

Lynn Chadwick, sculptor : with a complete illustrated catalogue, 1947-2003 by Dennis Farr( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003) was one of the leading British sculptors of his generation. This essential illustrated catalogue raisonné of his sculpture is published in a new, fourth edition to coincide with Chadwick's centenary in 2014 and incorporates a new illustrated listing of his lithographs and jewellery, new reproductions of many of his sculptures (including some in colour), a completely new page design, and the most up-to-date catalogue information on his work. Chadwick began his career as an architectural draughtsman, but after the Second World War he took up sculpture without any formal training. He initially concentrated on mobiles, and these were followed by welded constructions and bronzes. He established his international reputation in 1956, when he won the International Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale. He consistently worked in welded iron and was constantly intrigued by human and animal forms: no matter how abstract the sculpture became at times, it was always firmly rooted in a deep understanding of the natural world. This reference book includes comprehensive, updated lists of Chadwick’s exhibitions, the public collections he is represented in, and a full biography, alongside the fully illustrated complete catalogue of his sculpture. The introductory essay by the late Dennis Farr, which draws on interviews with the artist, examines Chadwick's development as a sculptor and his sculptural techniques, and the catalogue notes now incorporate a useful new explanation of Chadwick’s bronze casts and foundries
