Eduardo Paolozzi

Eduardo Paolozzi

£45.00

Quantity
Artist and sculptor, Eduardo Paolozzi was a unique and prolific cultural figure. His work was instantly recognisable and chronicles the significant changes in British art from the 1950s to the post-post-modern late 1990s This imposing and stunningly illustrated hardback book provides an extensive overview of his prolific and complex work across from all periods and across all media including: sculpture, ceramics, tapestry, printmaking, collage and film An Italian Scot, Paolozzie began his studies at Edinburgh College of Art, before moving on to the Ruskin Drawing School and later the Slade. In the 1950s he became a founding member of the Independent Group, though he resisted the 'Pop' label, preferring instead to see his ground breaking interdisciplinarity as an expansion and extension of radical Surrealism Dedicating a chapter to each facet of Paolozzi's wide-ranging practice - including, in turn, his bronze, aluminium and public sculptures, as well as his early collages and his innovative screenprints - this book offers the definitive, illustrated, art-historical appraisal of an artist whose work continues to fascinate and inspire Eduardo's The Head of Invention sculpture for Terence Conran rests outside the entrance to the Design Museum

Published annually from 1906 until 1980, Decorative Art, The Studio Yearbook was dedicated to the latest currents in architecture, interiors, furniture, lighting, glassware, textiles, metalware, and ceramics. Since the publications went out of print, the now hard-to-find yearbooks have become highly prized by collectors and dealers Decorative Art 1960s looks at the birth of pop in a decade of unprecedented social, sexual, and political change. All the restless energies bubbling throughout the world during the 1960s made their way into the design style of the decade. Liberation was in the air, men were rushing to the moon, and the sky was the limit as far as visual creativity was concerned. The concept of lifestyle really came into its own, and although the early years of the decade still saw a rivalry between the well-crafted object and industrial manufacture, by its end both ethnic and pop iconography had gained equal foothold in the aesthetic. Light was also predominant in shaping interiors. Freedom of choice and personal expression were the buzzwords for the young consumer, and so the likes of Pasmore, Panton, Safdie, Sottsass, Paolozzi, and Lomazzi did what they could to oblige
