ANTHONY CARO

ANTHONY CARO (1924-)

Anthony Caro is widely regarded as Britain's greatest living sculptor and has enjoyed an international reputation since the early 1960s. This publication accompanies a major retrospective exhibition of Caro's work at Tate Britain in January 2005. Although best known for his work in steel, Caro has also worked in bronze, wood, lead, ceramics and paper, on both large and intimate scales. In 1960 he began making purely abstract sculptures constructed and welded in steel, comprising beams, girders and other elements painted in bright colours. The exhibition of these works at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1963 caused a sensation and heralded a revolution in sculpture. Within a short period conventional ideas about materials, method, surface, scale, form and space were overturned by his radical reworking of all these elements.

Since the 1980s, the range of Caro's work has increased, encompassing 'sculpitecture' (sculpture that the viewer enters and explores internally); large-scale works that allude to the language of classical architecture; and sculptures that respond to earlier works of art by such masters as Rubens, Manet and Matisse.

This extensively illustrated book includes an overview of Caro's career by the exhibition curator Paul Moorhouse, as well as critical essays by Micheal Fried and Dave Hickey. In accompanying the major exhibition at Tate Britain in 2005, this will be the most up-to-date survey of Caro's work in print.
