Gerald Laing: A Catalogue Raisonne: 2016 | Author: Lyndsey Ingram, Marco. Livingstone, and Michael Findlay
This is a complete, illustrated catalogue of the painting and sculpture of Pop Art pioneer Gerald Laing (1936–2011), who shot to fame in the 1960s with his large-scale, iconic paintings of film-stars such as Brigitte Bardot and Anna Karina, conveyed in styles and colours that aped the crude but powerful printing processes of mass advertising.
In 1964 Laing moved to New York and transformed effortlessly from Pop artist to abstract minimalist, showing works in the seminal Primary Structures exhibition of 1966 and forming lasting friendships with leading lights of the US art world, such as Andy Warhol, Larry Poons, Roy Lichtenstein and Larry Bell. A self-imposed exile to a restored Scottish castle in 1969 removed him from the art world’s centre, but allowed him the space to develop a more personal, sculptural vocabulary in which the hard edges of his abstraction gradually gave way to anthropomorphic form.
This catalogue raisonné covers each distinct phase of Laing’s career and includes a fully illustrated catalogue of his works alongside comprehensive related reference material: chronology, exhibition history and list of public collections. An introductory essay by Michael Findlay, a close friend of Laing, provides an overview of his artistic development while essays by gallerist Lyndsey Ingram, curator and writer Robert Upstone and Marco Livingstone, a leading authority on Pop Art, examine specific periods and aspects of Laing’s practice.
