What is New Generation Sculpture?
New Generation Sculpture was begun in the 1960s by a group of British artists. Their experiments with forms, materials and colors focused on sculpture which had no conventional bases. Their work used plastic sheeting, fiberglass, and other materials fastened together and brightly painted.Artwork by Anthony Caro

ARTWORKS RELATED TO NEW GENERATION SCULPTURE
Printmaking technique belonging to Intaglio family, where an image is skillfully incised to a plate using a hard pointed object or "needle" of a sharp diamond or metal point. Copper was traditionally the plate but nowadays, zinc, plexiglas or acetate are commonly used. Like in etching, drypoint is a little bit easier for a drawing artist to master compared to engraving as the needle technique is closer to the use of a pencil than the burin in engraving.
Crayon is the French word for pencil. It is a pointed stick of colored wax, chalk, charcoal or clay used for coloring and drawing. Crayons are made from paraffin wax derived from petroleum, coal or wood. Pastel and oil pastels are also types of crayons.
