About this title

Synopsis:

As an artist, Anthony Caro revolutionized our perception of sculpture; as a teacher, Caro inspired a generation of accomplished artists such as Anish Kapoor, Antony Gormley, and Rachel Whiteread. This complete career monograph examines 50 of Caro’s most iconic works, selected in conjunction with the artist before his death in 2013.

Each work featured is accompanied by Caro’s commentary, in which he identifies his influences, aims, and stories behind the work’s creation, as well as archival material and specially commissioned documentary photographs. Interspersed throughout the book are notes on Caro’s exhibitions and contributions from a range of artists and critics, including Kapoor, Gormley, and Whiteread, along with Richard Deacon, Clement Greenberg, and Michael Fried.

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.

Toby Glanville’s photography is featured in numerous publications, including Family (Phaidon, 2005), Actual Life (2003), Then Things Went Quiet (2003) and The Lebanese Kitchen (Phaidon, 2012). Collections in which his work is held include the Victoria & Albert Museum, the British Council, British Land, the Bruce Bernard Collection and the National Portrait Gallery, London.
