More about the book:
Anish Kapoor is the most extensive monograph on the artist ever published. Opening with a rarely seen collection of black and white photographs of the artist at work in his London studio in the 1970s and 1980s, Anish Kapoor features a major survey of the artist’s work by renowned art historian David Anfam, a detailed chronology, and more than 300 illustrations over 600 pages.
Anish Kapoor presents the range of Kapoor’s practice, from his rarely seen early performance works to his most ambitious projects, all accompanied by related sketches and technical diagrams, some published for the first time.
