Description

Lynn Chadwick is the definitive monograph on the leading Modern British sculptor. Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003) achieved world-wide recognition after winning the International Prize for Sculpture at the 1956 Venice Biennale. He became the most famous member of a generation of young British sculptors whose work captured the essence of the Cold War epoch. Michael Bird draws on fresh research to create the first full-scale art-historical appraisal of Chadwick s oeuvre, including a compelling account of the sculptor s artistic personality and working methods.The book provides a comprehensive survey of Chadwick s career, from his beginnings as an architectural designer in the 1930s, through his emergence as a major international sculptor in the 1950s, to his late, isolated pursuit of monumental bronze and steel sculpture in the 1980s and 1990s. It reassesses earlier critical positions on Chadwick s work and post-war British sculpture more generally and offers a fresh perspective on all phases of his long and productive career.This highly readable book will appeal to anyone interested in Modern British art in general and post-war sculpture in particular, including museum and gallery professionals and audiences, collectors and dealers, scholars, teachers and students. 120 colour and 40 b&w illustrations. 192 pp.
