More About This Book

Overview

This is the first major illustrated monograph to be published on British sculptor Bernard Meadows (b. 1915), a key figure of post-war British sculpture. In his catalogue introduction, Herbert Read coined the phrase 'the geometry of fear' - a particularly apposite description of Meadows' sculpture. For Meadows has been obsessed in his work with the representation of fear, first with frightened birds, and then with frightening armed figures. It is only in the later part of his long career, in the works of the late 1970s and early 1980s, that the mood changes, and a more sensuous, erotic element invades the sculptures and drawings. This volume reproduces as full-page colour and black-and-white plates the major pieces of sculpture and related drawings. It also includes a complete catalogue of sculpture; lists of exhibitions, public collections and public commissions; and introductory essays by Alan Bowness and Penelope Curtis.
