CARO AT MUSEO CORRER
The splendid rooms of the Museo Correr will be the setting for the first major Italian retrospective dedicated to one of the greatest of living sculptors: Sir Anthony Caro (New Malden, Surrey, 1924).
The versatile British artist, who has made an important mark in the history of art since the 1960s, has radically “revolutionised” his art. After a strictly figurative beginning, under the influence of his teacher, Henry Moore, he drifted away from sculptural tradition to create revolutionary assemblages, welded and bolted together, painted in bright colours and positioned on the floor within the viewer’s space; these were abstract works but rich in ideal content. This new, fascinating sculptural language established him as a key figure in the development of 20th century sculpture alongside David Smith, Mark Di Suvero and Richard Serra.
