Anthony CARO (1924 – 2013)
Anthony Caro was born on March, 8, 1924 and died on October, 23, 2013. He was an English abstract sculptor whose work is characterised by assemblages of metal using ‘found’ industrial objects. His style was of the modernist school, having worked with Henry Moore early in his career. He was lauded as the greatest British sculptor of his generation.
Caro was also a tutor at Saint Martin’s School of Art in London, inspiring a younger generation of British abstract sculptors, led by former students and assistants including Phillip King, Tim Scott, William G. Tucker, Peter Hide, and Richard Deacon; as well as a reaction group including Bruce McLean, Barry Flanagan, Richard Long, Jan Dibbets, David Hall and Gilbert & George.
