Caro and North American Painters
This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Caro and North American Painters at Gagosian, Grosvenor Hill, London. Contextualizing aesthetic dialogues between Anthony Caro and his fellow artists, the presentation featured significant floor sculptures by Caro from the 1960s and 1970s paired with paintings by American artists Helen Frankenthaler, Kenneth Noland, Jules Olitski, and Larry Poons, as well as Canadian artist Jack Bush, all of whom were his friends and collaborators over the years.
The publication documents the twenty-two works in the exhibition with individual plates, details, and installation photography and features a new essay by Paul Moorhouse, curator of the exhibition and chief executive of the Anthony Caro Centre. Additionally, brief prose biographies of the six artists, an illustrated timeline spanning 1909 to 2013 that highlights important moments in their respective careers as well points of connection, and other archival materials help to further illuminate the nature of this important creative dialogue.
