Synopsis: Recipient of the 1994 Turner Prize, Antony Gormley is an internationally acclaimed artist who has revitalized the human figure in sculpture. His public sculpture projects, such as the Angel of the North, have continued to grow in scale and ambition, as well as popularity. This book is published to coincide with a major solo exhibition of his work at SITE Santa Fe in New Mexico in November 2000, and on tour in the US in 2002.
About the Author: John Hutchinson is an art historian and scholar in Oriental Studies who lives and works in Ireland. After working for several years at the National Gallery of Ireland, he freelanced as a music and art critic. Since 1981 he has been Director of the Douglas Hyde Galley in Dublin. Among his publications are catalogue essays on Anselm Kiefer, Christian Boltanski, Wolfgang Laib and Toshikatsu Endo. W. J. T. Mitchell is Professor of English and Art History at the University of Chicago and Editor-in-Chief of the journal Critical Enquiry. He is author of Iconology: Image, Text, Ideology (University of Chicago Press, 1987) and editor of The Language of Images (University of Chicago Press, 1980) and Art and the Public Sphere. Ernst Gombrich was one of the greatest and least conventional art historians of his age, achieving fame and distinction in three separate spheres: as a scholar, as a popularizer of art, and as a pioneer of the application of the psychology of perception to the study of art. His best-known book, The Story of Art - first published 50 years ago and now in its sixteenth edition - is one of the most influential books ever written about art. His books further include The Sense of Order (1979) and The Preference for the Primitive (2002), as well as a total of 11 volumes of collected essays and reviews. Gombrich was born in Vienna in 1909 and died in London in November 2001. He came to London in 1936 to work at the Warburg Institute, where he eventually became Director from 1959 until his retirement in 1976. He won numerous international honours, including a knighthood, the Order of Merit and the Goethe, Hegel and Erasmus prizes. Lela B.
