More About This Title Anthony Caro


Anthony Caro is internationally recognised as one of the greatest modernist sculptors. Caro's working processes and quest for a new language for sculpture are examined through a chronological examination of his work alongside letters, interviews, press cuttings and previously unpublished documentary images and correspondence with art critics.
