About this title

Synopsis:

Though Anthony Caro's oeuvre is most readily identified by large-scale and plinthless sculptures that sometimes dwarf the viewer, he has directed a significant portion of his energies over the past five decades to the production of domestically sized pieces in a variety of media. This volume explores this underappreciated course of Caro's prolific output. The book is divided into sections that fall along the divisions of medium: Table Sculptures (including 'Writing Pieces'), Bronze Pieces, Lead and Wood Sculptures, Paper Sculptures, Silver Pieces, Ceramic Sculptures and Jewellery. It provides an insight into Caro's working practice by considering the scale, the setting and the materials of Caro's small-scale sculpture. This volume offers an illuminating perspective on Caro's adventurous sense of the appropriate form and function of sculpture as he experimented simultaneously with their size, scale and medium.
