Publication Launch - Rizzoli Monograph New Edition
A new, expanded and updated edition of the definitive monograph on Antony Gormley, is now available in an affordably priced format. This beautiful publication examines the entirety of Gormley’s career, from his earliest sketches to his best-known public installations. Martin Caiger-Smith’s ‘magnificent, magisterial overview’ (The Independent) examines the relationship between Gormley’s life and art and identifies the singular vision that ties together a vast canon of work in an extraordinary range of media and materials. Drawing on images that range from childhood snap-shots to photographs of his most recent installations, this book traces the evolution of Gormley’s work, from the drawings he makes every day in the studio, through the constantly evolving process of casting his own body in various forms. Illustrated with hundreds of images that explore the scale and impact of Gormley’s work-including his acclaimed exhibition at the Royal Academy in 2019, as well as recent installations in Florence, Delos, and New York City-and ‘dense with insight and deeply considered analysis from the author’ (Financial Times), this book is the definitive survey of a monumental career.
