Paper

Richard Cork is one of the most serious, most influential, and best-informed art critics in Britain today. These four volumes contain a selection of his articles from the seventies, eighties, nineties, and the year 2000. The result is a fascinating chronicle and invaluable record of a turbulent period that gives an overview and survey of British art and its reception over the past thirty years which is wholly unprecedented in its scope.

Dr Richard Cork is a well-known art historian, critic, broadcaster and exhibition curator. He was Slade Professor of Fine Art at Cambridge University from 1980Ð90, and the Henry Moore Senior Fellow at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London from 1992Ð95. He has been an art critic for the Evening Standard, The Listener, The Times and the New Statesman, and is a past Turner Prize judge. Among his books published by Yale University Press are David Bomberg (1987), A Bitter Truth: Avant-Garde Art and the Great War (1994), Art Beyond the Gallery in the Early Twentieth-Century (1985), and a four-volume edition of his journalism and other writing (2003).
 

“Cork’s writings have always embraced innovation and experimentation, while stressing what is worth preserving. Not only do these four volumes provide a fascinating account of the way in which art, artists and art institutions have evolved over three decades, they confirm that Cork’s lucid, even-handed and at times trenchantly critical judgement has been invaluable in helping to create the multiplicity of approach and vigorous debates that most of us find so stimulating about today’s artistic climate.”—Louisa Buck, Art Quarterly
