Sculpture Since 1945 by Andrew Causey

Book Description

Since 1945 the modern revolution in sculpture has gathered pace, and sculpture has now ceased to be the fixed category it once was. In recent decades the modernist idea of sculpture across the UK, America, and Europe, has been challenged, and issues such as nationalityand politics have been brought in to the arena of public discussion. In this ground-breaking account of the development of post-War sculpture Andrew Causey examines innovative and avant-garde works in relation to contemporary events, festivals, commissions, the marketplace, and the changing functions of museums. He explores the use of everyday objects and the importance of sculptural context, discussing figurative and non-figurative works, Anti-form, Minimalism, experimental form, Earth Art, landscape sculpture, installation, and Performance Art. The holistic picture of post-War sculpture which emerges establishes for the first time the key events and themes round which future debate will centre. From the pre-publication reviews: Andrew Causey weaves his way adroitly through the labyrinth of post-War sculpture ...No one else has charted the territory so comprehensively |s Professor Stephen Bann, University of Kent at Canterbury stimulating and persuasive . ..balances a searching analysis of the impact of institutional change, issues of sites and environment, and key critical debates with revealing commentaries on individual artists and works of art ...a discerning guide for anyone interested in contemporary art and culture. |s Elizabeth Cowling, University of Edinburgh a clear guide to the various directions of sculpture and the work of sculptors in the years when modern sculpture has begun to stand in its own right as a major art form. |s Sir Anthony Caro, Sculptor

Stanley Spencer (1891-1959) explored fundamental issues of life with an urgency and persistence unique among British artists of his generation. His art comments on religion, love, sexuality, fraternity and community.

Paul Nash by Andrew Causey Paul Nash, Hardback (May 2013)

Paul Nash (1889-1946) created an individual pathway through English art in the first half of the 20th century, shaping a body of work that recognised the importance of the modern movement and stimulated him to evolve his own English landscape-based Surrealism. Within a narrative that is both chronological and thematic, Andrew Causey.

Drawings of Henry Moore by Andrew Causey Drawings of Henry Moore, Hardback (January 2010)

Henry Moore's Shelter Drawings are universally recognised as a key element of his oeuvre. However, these drawings should not be seen in isolation. This title presents an account of the development of Moore's work as a draughtsman, providing a discussion of this significant aspect of his artistic output.

Peter Lanyon by Andrew Causey Peter Lanyon, Paperback (August 2006)

Peter Lanyon transformed the art of landscape, rescuing it from the picturesque and bringing it back to the centre as a radical practice capable of expressing radical ideas. This book sets out to explain just what this transformation involved. It offers fresh reflections on Lanyon's relationship with both American art and post-war Paris.
