Anthony Caro Sculpture

Caro at Chatsworth is the first show devoted to a single artist at Chatsworth. It provides a once in a lifetime chance to see the larger work of Anthony Caro in one of Britain's most famous historic settings. All the sculptures in the exhibition have been lent by the artist and reflect his major concerns over the past four decades. Early examples of Caro's steel sculptures painted in blue, orange and green are shown alongside examples from the renowned 'Flats' series of sculptures made in Canada in rusted and varnished steel in the 1970s. More recent works from the 1990s reflect Caro's continual experimentation with the form and structure of steel.

Sir Anthony Caro OM CBE RA was born in 1924. He studied sculpture at the Royal Academy and came to public attention with a pioneering solo exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1963, which established his pivotal role in the development of twentieth century sculpture. Caro has since shown his work in exhibitions across the world and is represented in the major international collections of contemporary art. Most recently he has had solo exhibitions at Tate and on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. As well as Caro at Chatsworth, works by Anthony Caro are being exhibited in Jubilee Park, Canary Wharf, London and locally at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and The Hepworth Wakefield.

Spatial Thoughts on Sculpture by Bill West
Caro at Chatsworth is just as the article says at the top "a once in a lifetime chance to see the larger work of Anthony Caro in one of Britain's most famous historic settings". The sculptor Anthony Caro is so worth seeing and this venue at Chatsworth, well put the two together is just beyond words. Just go, even if you've never given sculpture a second thought! You will not regret your time spent, nor will you ever forget it!
