Anthony Caro – “CARO at CVNE” – 2016

Anthony Caro (1924 -2013) is one of the most important British sculptors of the 20th Century.
The selection comprises a total of 23 sculptures by Caro, twelve of which are on display indoors, with the remainder at various locations around the buildings and gardens of the winery.

In the music of his sculpture Caro convokes and evokes. Concepts and images converge and intertwine in their own identity. Caro’s visual experience is always accumulative, capable of fermenting like good wine and emerging when its presence is required.

Lauded as the greatest British sculptor of his generation, Anthony Caro is one of the most important British sculptors of the 20th Century. His work, characterised by assemblages of metal using ‘found’ industrial objects has been presented and collected at major museums worldwide, including: the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Museum of Fine Arts, Bilbao, Spain: the Institute of Modern Art, Valencia, Spain; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; the Tate Gallery Museum, London, the National Portrait Gallery, London; three museums in Pas-de-Calais; France to accompany the 2008 inauguration of Caro’s ‘Chapel of Light’ situated in the Church of St Jean Baptiste in Bourbourg, Northern France; and the Museo Correr, Venice, Italy.
