September 1988
Modern Painters;Autumn88, Vol. 1 Issue 3, p6
An interview with Anthony Caro, regarded as Great Britain's most eminent sculptor, is presented. Asked to explain how he became Henry Moore's assistant in 1951, Caro replied that he chose the best modern sculptor in England to work for and came to his house but only started working six months later. He said he tried to get the more creative jobs such as enlarging pieces and never actually used a pointing machine, but a home-made device for establishing points. He denied that Moore, whose family shared tea with him everyday, was autocratic towards him.
