Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0714867357, Hardcover)

As an artist, Anthony Caro revolutionized our perception of sculpture; as a teacher, Caro inspired a generation of accomplished artists such as Anish Kapoor, Antony Gormley, and Rachel Whiteread. This complete career monograph examines 50 of Caro’s most iconic works, selected in conjunction with the artist before his death in 2013.

Each work featured is accompanied by Caro’s commentary, in which he identifies his influences, aims, and stories behind the work’s creation, as well as archival material and specially commissioned documentary photographs. Interspersed throughout the book are notes on Caro’s exhibitions and contributions from a range of artists and critics, including Kapoor, Gormley, and Whiteread, along with Richard Deacon, Clement Greenberg, and Michael Fried.
