Lovers of modern art are in for a treat if they visit Chatsworth before 1st July. “Caro at Chatsworth” is the first show devoted to a single artist at Chatsworth and it provides a once in a lifetime opportunity 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 of the well known “Flats” series of sculptures, made in Canada in rusted and varnished steel in the 1970’s. More recent works from the 1990’s reflect Caro’s continual experimentation with the form and structure of steel.
All 15 works on display are situated around Chatsworth’s famous Canal Pond. For those wishing to know more about the artist and his works, short introductory talks about the exhibition will be taking place daily at 2 pm and 3.45 pm, at the Canal Pond.
