Eduardo Paolozzi

    Eduardo Paolozzi 1924-2005 was one of the most innovative and irreverent British artists of the 20th century. Considered the 'god-father of Pop Art', his powerful collages, sculptures and prints pushed against artistic convention from the 1950s 'Geometry of Fear' all the way through the Swinging Sixties and on to the advent of 'Cool Britannia'.Accompanying the first major exhibition of Paolozzi's art since 1975, this publication presents a comprehensive overview of Paolozzi's work from the 1940s to the 1990s, re-assessing one of the most dynamic, versatile and pugilistic artists from Britain and highlighting the relevance of his work for artists today.As well as entries on more than 100 works and a full bibliography, the book presents new approaches to Paolozzi by critics Hal Foster and Jon Wood Henry Moore Foundation, and by the contemporary Mexican artist Mariana Castillo Deball; new research and comment by Beth Williamson University of Bristol, Lisa Maddigan Newby University of East Anglia and Dawn Ades; a discussion on Paolozzi's public sculpture with Turner Prize winners Assemble; and a reprint of a brilliant 1971 conversation between Paolozzi and the novelist J.G.Ballard.
