During the post war years the British Council promoted a group of British sculptors on the prestigious stage of the Venice Biennale and at subsequent touring exhibitions across Europe, North and South America. This was a pivotal moment in the history of 20th Century British Art and led to widespread international acclaim for the selected artists. This exhibition catalogue brings together a group of important sculptures by these artists, some which were exhibited at the Venice Biennales, some borrowed from private collections and not been seen publicly for many years. The sculpture of this era has a power and resonance which continues to captivate collectors, museums, dealers and art historians alike. 98pp with colour images throughout.
