This month we'll be publishing Geoffrey Clarke Sculptor: A Catalogue Raisonne, the first complete catalogue of the sculpture of Geoffrey Clarke, a major figure in post-war British sculpture. The book is published in association with the artist’s estate and features catalogue entries accompanied by an exhibition history, a list of public collections as well as a comprehensive bibliography.
There are few familiar with the full scope of Clarke’s prolific output – how it transgressed from early iron pieces, indicative of the ‘geometry of fear’, to elegant aluminium works and later wooden abstract pieces of the 1990s. Spanning nearly five decades of making, Clarke’s impressive body of sculptural work is detailed alongside other elements of his diverse oeuvre – stained glass (including pieces created for Coventry Cathedral), silver, medals and textiles also feature.
Edited and with an introductory essay by Judith LeGrove, the leading authority on Geoffrey Clarke’s work, this book will be the definitive resource for curators, collectors, dealers and enthusiasts seeking a detailed overview of Clarke’s important artistic contribution.
