The first-ever exhibition in Britain of these selected sculptures and drawings of the figure by Anthony Caro

About

Originally created in 1983, during an artists' summer workshop in upstate New York, where for the first time since art school, Caro began drawing from a live model. Concetta Branson, the model fired Caro's imagination and led him to produce many drawings and sculptures. ‘The series was a one-off, an experiment, but one that I really enjoyed and am delighted to revisit and share through the galleries at the RBS' Caro Caro is Britain's most distinguished living artist. In his career spanning over six decades Caro transformed the potential and public appreciation, of abstract art through creating sculptures in steel and other materials. His reputation is of a risk-taker and to create the unexpected. His international reputation was confirmed with a retrospective held at New York's Museum of Modern Art in 1975, since when his productivity and inventiveness have never never slowed as he has found new audiences for abstract art across the globe.
