Kenneth Armitage : life and work by Kenneth Armitage( Book )

10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British sculptor Kenneth Armitage (born 1916) attracted critical acclaim early on in his career with works such as People in the Wind (1950) and Family going for a Walk (1951). By the time of his Venice Biennale exhibition in 1958 he was internationally famous, and since then he has been the subject of numerous exhibitions worldwide. His work is now recognised as having made a major contribution to British sculpture this century. Kenneth Armitage: Life and Work is the first full-scale monograph to be published on Armitage's sculpture and has been produced in close collaboration with the artist. The main text of the book is the edited transcript of tapes recorded by John McEwen and Tamsyn Woollcombe, in which Armitage explores the themes he has pursued throughout his career, and his attitudes to sculpture. Even those who know his work well will find illumination in the artist's candid, honest account of his own career

Published in the year marking the Centenary of the birth of the sculptor Kenneth Armitage CBE RA, this volume reflects his strengths as an artist, a teacher and friend. Sometimes taciturn, frequently humorous, loyal to those he loved and respected, Armitage?s career was dedicated to making sculpture. His great success in the 1950s was followed by a period when critical focus was directed to younger generations, but during his mature years his unstoppable energy and intellectual focus fed a burst of creativity that generated a renewed interest in his achievements. 0Newly commissioned essays on his work by Ann Elliott, and Dr Jon Wood place his work to the fore, while Tamsyn Woollcombe has assembled a life story based largely on interviews she made with his friends, lovers and professional colleagues together with archival material such as letters writings and photographs taken during his life. Jonathan Benington throws focus onto the sculpture, maquette and drawing of People in the Wind 1950 the sculpture that established Kenneth Armitage as an internationally celebrated sculptor in the XXIV Venice Biennale in 1952
