About this title

Synopsis:

The Sculpture of Kenneth Armitage, which is being published to coincide with the artist's centenary in 2016, is the first book to feature a fully illustrated inventory of all of Armitage's known sculptures. It will be the only available illustrated reference book on the sculptural work of this important 20th-century artist. Through an inventory of c.310 pieces and an accompanying narrative text, the book undertakes an examination of Armitage’s significant contribution to sculpture nationally and internationally during the second half of the 20th century, starting with the ‘geometry of fear’ exhibition at the 1952 Venice Biennale and Armitage’s solo contribution to the Biennale in 1958. It will be an essential reference resource for researchers, curators, dealers and collectors which will complement the complete sculpture catalogues already produced for Armitage’s sculptor contemporaries Lynn Chadwick, Elisabeth Frink, Robert Adams and Reg Butler, enhancing our understanding of post-war British sculpture.
