Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
This book is the documentation to the most important exhibition on recent British sculpture since a seminal show at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1981. Charles Harrison's introductory essay is a concise survey of mid-century trends and influential artists. An essay by Lynne Cooke shifts the focus to six featured ``masters'': Tony Cragg, Richard Deacon, Barry Flanagan, Richard Long, David Nash, and Bill Woodrow. Each artist is treated to his own essay, with bibliographic notes and plentiful illustrations. A useful artist chronology concludes the work. The plates are not all as evocative as they could be, but together they give a real sense of the subject matter. The book fills a need in the literature of contemporary British art. Paula A. Baxter, Museum of Modern Art Lib., New York
