Anthony Caro: Figurative and Narrative Sculpture
Over the past two decades Anthony Caro 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 was 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 and provide a fresh perspective from which to recognise essential qualities of Caro’s art as a whole. This book reveals how Caro’s figurative and narrative sculptures test the frontiers of abstraction.
