First published to accompany a group exhibition at Piano Nobile, Aspects of Abstraction 1952-2007, this fully color illustrated catalogue showcases seminal works of abstract art produced in Britain over the course of five decades. The publication features the work of internationally renowned artists including Terry Frost, William Scott, William Turnbull, William Crozier, Jack Smith, John Golding, William Pye, Anthony Caro, John Hoyland, Bridget Riley, and Anish Kapoor. Lavishly illustrated throughout and with an introductory essay by Margaret Garlake, the catalogue presents exceptional paintings and sculptures, created by artists in dialogue with contemporaries and predecessors in Britain, and diverse international centres of abstraction. Highlighting pivotal artistic moments of transition and transformation in abstraction over the course of a half century, the catalogue presents an innovative vision of the international contribution of post-war British abstract art.
