Book Description
Anthony Caro (b. 1924) is widely regarded as Britain's greatest living sculptor and has enjoyed an international reputation since the early 1960s. 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. Since the 1980s, the range of Caro's work has increased, encompassing "sculpitecture" (sculpture that the viewer can enter); large-scale works that allude to classical architecture; and sculptures that respond to earlier works by such masters as Rubens, Manet, and Matisse.

This extensively illustrated book includes an overview of Caro's career by Paul Moorhouse, as well as critical essays by Michael Fried and Dave Hickey. This publication accompanies a major retrospective exhibition of Caro's work opening at Tate Britain in...

Book Description
Heinrich Caro (1834-1910) was the inventor of new chemical processes that in the two decades commencing in 1869 enabled BASF of Ludwigshafen, Germany, to take first place among manufacturers of synthetic dyestuffs.

This first full-length scientific biography of Heinrich Caro delineates his role in the emergence of the industrial research laboratory, the forging of links between academic and industrial chemistry, and the development of modern patent law.

Book Description
Spain's second largest city, Barcelona, may be famous for its architecture and its history, but in amongst those Romanesque churches, winding Gothic streets, and Gaudi apartment buildings lurk a museum full of permanent outdoor sculptures. More than 50 of the most noteworthy of these 20th-century public artworks are reproduced here, including pieces by Roy Lichtenstein, Alexander Calder, Richard Serra, Antoni Tapies, Frank Gehry, Ellsworth Kelly, Lawrence Weiner, Rebecca Horn, Joan Miro, Claes Oldenburg, Juan Munoz, Anthony Caro, and James Turrell. Though it enjoyed an illustrious past as a Roman colony, Visigoth capital, and 14th-century martitime power, "Barcelona Sculptures" vividly proves that the capital of the Catalonia region is firmly ensconced in the modern world, especially the modern art world.

The Halifax Steps

From Publishers Weekly
Caro's metallic sculpture is sometimes compared to abstract painting or architecture. This attractively priced showcase, the latest in Rizzoli's small-format (8 11) series, justifies the comparison, particularly with Hop Scotch, reminiscent of Jackson Pollock's interlocking syncopations. An apprentice to Henry Moore in the '50s, Caro abandoned the Moore-influenced swollen human forms to develop a language of abstract gestures that cuts to bare essentials. Large steel conglomerations seem to float weightless in space. Configurations of bars, screens, wedges, panels and curves define new spatial arrangements with grace and economy. Caro has branched out with bronzes like Buddha Peach and small table-top pieces. In the 1980s his explorations are based on ocean waves, towers, belts and pines, suggesting that his art...

Blast to Freeze: British Art in the 20th Century

Paperback
·
 
Book Description
It was a sensation, indeed, when the young British artists took over the art scene in the 1990s. But what came before them? With works from more than 100 artists, Blast to Freeze traces the epoch-making art movements of an entire British century, from the outbreak of World War I to the collapse of the Soviet Union, beginning and ending with a decided break from the traditional. In 1914 a group of young British artists, the Vorticists, in their avant-garde journal Blast!, propagated a style that blended influences from French cubism and Italian futurism into an independent British modernism. In turn, mavericks such as Henry Moore and Francis Bacon are unthinkable without the British primitivists and surrealists of the 20s and 30s. The specifically British brand of pop art began with the legendary...
