Product story

Paul Huxley RA places the new work in the context of Maine's career, while Dr Richard Gem introduces the history and significance of the Cosmati pavement. A conversation between Maine and the architect Richard MacCormac RA considers the differences between their respective practices.

The Royal Academy’s Artists’ Laboratory series presents the more experimental and less familiar work of contemporary artists, opening up their creative process to explore the conceptual, visual and practical issues with which they engage. Each title includes conversations with fellow practicioners and essays by leading art historians.
