Artist Boss is the first and only extended engagement with prolific sculptor Sir Anthony Caro (1924-2013)– regarded as the 'greatest of his generation'– and his studio assistants. It raises questions concerning the status of production, originality, authenticity, and authorship within the tradition of twentieth-century British sculpture.

Lavishly illustrated, with a series of interviews with Anthony Caro's studio assistants and critical essays, it inquires into the role of artists' assistants, exploring the different ways in which the evolution of sculptural language has been negotiated. This book runs in tandem with a series of exhibitions at New Arts Centre, Roche Court, The Cut in Suffolk, and Bath School of Art and Design at Sion Hill, as well as a website with learning resources: http://artistboss.org.uk/.
