"Richard Long was born June 2, 1945, in Bristol, England. He studied at West of England College of Art, Bristol, between 1962 and 1965. By 1964, Long was already making Earthworks and experimenting with the idea of impermanence, a theme that would inform his work throughout his career. Long’s use of walking as an art form was introduced as early as 1967. From 1966 to 1968, he studied at the St. Martin’s School of Art, London, under Anthony Caro and Phillip King. While there, he became closely associated with fellow student Hamish Fulton." Text from Guggenheim Collection Website
