Description

Europaische Graphik VI, 1968-1969--a portfolio of 11 lithographs by sculptors to include Tower by Reg Butler published by Felix H. Man and Galerie Wolfgang Ketterer in Munich, Germany.

About the Artist (1913-1981, British)  From England, Reg Butler came to prominence after World War II at the same time as sculptors Lynn Chadwick, Germaine Richier, and Alberto Giacometti. Throughout the 1940s, Butler made forged and welded-steel constructions, similar to those of David Smith.

In the 1950s, he turned away from open structures to enclosed volumes with a more obvious human presence, often seeming to be caught in a suspended wiry structure.

During the last 10 years of his career, Butler abandoned steel and worked in bronze depicting larger-than-life-size female nudes. In a lecture in 1962, he introduced the term "postmodern" into art vocabulary, predicting the injection of figurative work into total abstraction.
