The unifying theme of these works is that they answer Caros imperative to make something that was as important in a room as a person.MoreThis book surveys Caros free-standing, floor-based, constructed, abstract sculptures from 1960 to the present.

The unifying theme of these works is that they answer Caros imperative to make something that was as important in a room as a person. The author explores the idea of presence in Caros sculpture, focusing on the way that in order to invest sculpture with an independent existence and self-contained reality, it was necessary for Caro to purge it of figurative references. As a result, Caro has created sculptures that are in the world but not of the world: they have their own individual character, but they exist at a remove, purely for the purpose of contemplation and employing a language of abstract, expressive shape.

The book outlines the scope and significance of Caros achievement in liberating and extending the language of sculpture in the late 20th and early 21st century, and in establishing new realities for sculpture for generations to come.
