By Bryant, Julius
Over the past two decades, Anthony Caro (b.1924) has moved on from the steel sculptures with which he achieved international standing to explore the unknown ground where abstract, figurative and narrative art all meet. As this book reveals, this is not some reckless late style of... an established artist determined to be provocative. Rather, these more recent works share many of the concerns of Caro's celebrated sculptures. In their human scale and physical range of reference, in their commitment to the power of expression and in their essential humanity, these sculptures provide a fresh perspective from which to recognise essential qualities of Caro's art as a whole. Published to mark his 85th birthday, this book reveals how Caro's figurative and narrative sculptures test the frontiers of abstraction.Read more
