Happy Birthday Anthony Caro!! Today and tomorrow I will look at two contemporary Abstract sculptors, the first of which is Anthony Caro. English sculptor born in 1924, Caro began his apprenticeship at age 13 in the summers, served in the Royal Navy during World War II, studied sculpture at the Royal Academy and finally worked under Abstract sculptor Henry Moore. He has concentrated on large metal sculptors, seated directly on the ground, thus immediately engaging the viewer. His work is monumental in size, sometimes rusted and varnished as the one pictured below. Caro has also worked with handmade paper, odd parts of machinery, and other found objects.
