about this item
“I didn’t want them to be anything, to have thegraspability of a figure or a statue. They had to besomething that you really took time to understandvisually and emotionally.” —Anthony CaroThis catalogue presents fourteen early sculptures by the late artist, many of which had never before been shown in the United States. Documented in vivid color photographs, these exuberant sculptures depict Anthony Caro’s decision to bypass representational imagery, and to use bright colors to synthesize the bolted and welded metal parts that replaced it.Along with installation shots and historical photographs, this vibrant book includes a brand-new essay from Tim Marlow that tracks Caro’s development as a sculptor, as well as Rosalind Krauss’s 1967ArtInternational article on the artist and the nature of sculpture. This catalogue is published in conjunction with Caro’s 2015 show at Gagosian Gallery Beverly Hills.
