This form will search the category Art: History and Reference. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

If you enter two or more words in this box, the search will look for both words, but not necessarily in the order you enter. Don't worry about upper and lower case. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

To look for part of a word, use the wildcard * - for example, lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.


This form will search the category Art: History and Reference. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

You can make a very specific search using this form: keep your search broad enough to find what you are looking for! If you enter two or more words in the Author, Title, Publisher or Keywords fields we'll look for all of them, though not necessarily in the order you enter them.

Where a book has more than one ISBN we use the British ISBN; and we also tend to use the 10-digit ISBN instead of the 13-digit one.

You don't need to worry about upper and lower case in this search. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

Robert Morris (Tate Gallery, London 28 April - 6 June 1971)

Tate Gallery, London
Landscape 4to in blind embossed thick card with cream cloth spine, black lettering to spine, 128pp on thick art paper, plates, folding catalogue and exhibition plan in pocket at rear (as issued). This landmark exhibition was famously cut short after just 4 days following damage to visitors and the exhibits from 'over-zealous' climbing. This is one of the catalogues that were marked up with a note on the front blank fly-leaf asking visitors to refrain from climbing on one of the exhibits. This marking up was probably done by Morris himself on the last day of the exhibition as one of a number of, alas fruitless, tactics to avoid closure. The exhibition was re-staged in 2009 in Tate Modern's Turbine Hall with exhibits made from more forgiving and robust materials, and which proved so successful the exhibition was extended by 3 weeks.
