Lynn Chadwick

Display: 16 June - 29 September 2013

Following on from the joint exhibition Lynn Chadwick: Evolution in Sculpture at Blackwell and Abbot Hall Art Gallery, the sculptures outside, set against Blackwell's sublime Cumbrian landscape, will remain in place, accompanied by a selection of small works on display inside Blackwell putting them in the context of Chadwick’s career as a whole.

Chadwick was a self-taught artist whose skilful designs combined with technical skill created dramatic and distinctive metal sculptures. Although highly respected throughout his career, from his rise to prominence at the 1952 Venice Biennale and his winning of the International Prize for Sculpture there four years later, through to his establishment as a major sculptor on the world stage, Chadwick has not had a retrospective at a public gallery in Britain since his show at the Tate in 2004, the year after his death.
