Notes: A thorough visual survey of Cragg’s sculpture dating from the early 1970s to the present day, tracing the artist’s development from his formative years at the Wimbledon School of Art through his conceptual, rather than stylistic, evolution of a sculptural vernacular. Germano Celant’s introductory critique is followed by an extensive section of plates bringing out the unique shape, colour and texture of individual works, interwoven with reflections from the artist himself. With a full reference section including biography, select bibliography, list of works, and exhibition history. 351 pages, 249 illustrations, 160 in colour. Silver stamped blue cloth in dustjacket, near fine.
