Anthony Caro : interior and exterior by Karen Wilkin( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the early 1980s, Anthony Caro, first acclaimed for his linear, open steel constructions, has been preoccupied with a conception of sculpture as enclosed space and as metaphor for enclosed space. For the first time, Karen Wilkin examines the sculptor's fascination with questions about interior and exterior, volume and mass that verge on the architectural." "Work emerging from Caro's studio over the last two decades has emphasised density and containment. Wilkin reveals the evolution of this approach from its seeds in his early figurative sculptures of the 1950s, through his internationally celebrated steel works of the 1960s and 1970s, to his recent large-scale sculptures. These culminate in Caro's Chapel of Light, Bourbourg, Pas-de-Calais, where he was commissioned to bring a damaged 13th-century apse back to contemporary life. Caro treated the entire choir as a mixed-media sculptural volume, animated by his additions of wooden towers, reliefs and an enormous baptismal font." "Karen Wilkin draws on her vast knowledge of Caro's work, based on 30 years of experiencing his sculptures directly, visiting the studio and holding conversations with the artist. She reaches out to new audiences for his work while at the same time offering new insights and interpretations to the specialist."--Jacket
Anthony Caro : quest for the new sculpture by Ian Barker( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anthony Caro is internationally acknowledged as one of the greatest modernist sculptors of our time. His radical approach heralded a revolution in sculpture. Through his work and teaching he freed sculpture from 'the monolith'. This landmark publication is the first to present a comprehensive overview of the artist's achievements to date, as seen through a wealth of fascinating archival and contemporary sources. It exclusively brings together selections from his previously unpublished correspondence with critics, including Clement Greenberg and Michael Fried, and his fellow artists. The story of Caro's quest for a new language for sculpture is told through these extracts from letters and interviews. Contemporary critical reaction to Caro's sculpture is also traced through selected press cuttings from his principal exhibitions and other major events of his career. Caro's working processes and views on sculpture are detailed both through an engaging chronological examination of his entire development and through previously unpublished documentary images of the exhibitions, places and personalities that influenced his work"--Bookjacket

Pablo Picasso : the legacy of a genius by Robert Rosenblum( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exploring the breadth of the artist's achievements through the insights and speculations of fellow artists, close relatives, historians, and critics, the film centers on thirteen key works which vividly represent the major turning points in Picasso's career. Robert Rosenblum, an art historian and a noted authority on Picasso, introduces us to these key works. Dominique Bozo, founder of the Musée Picasso, visits the places in Paris and the south of France where the artist lived and worked, and discusses the relationship between his milieu and art. Critic Clement Greenberg and Picasso's biographer Roland Penrose present their views on many important issues in Picasso's career. Several generations of painters and sculptors have had to contend with the scope of Picasso's vision. Among others, Henry Moore, Matta, Anthony Caro, David Hockney, George Segal, and Roy Lichtenstein comment on the ways in which Picasso's oeuvre has affected their own artistic sensibilities. Pablo Picasso: the legacy of a genius is an assessment of the 20th century's best known artist and his vast achievements
