British sculptor Phillip King (Tunis, Tunisia, 1934 – London, 2021) studied in London in the late 1950s under Anthony Caro. He would develop himself into an important abstract artist. In the 1960s he exhibited sculptures made of various new materials, such as fiberglass as well as wood and slate. He exhibited twice at Documenta in Kassel. His sculptures were purchased by international museums. The Kröller-Müller Museum also has work made by King in its collection. In the 1970s, King turned his attention more to images that seek a relationship with the public.
