Anthony Caro was born in 1924 in New Malden, England, and died in 2013. Considered to be one of the greatest sculptors of the last fifty years, Sir Anthony Caro took the norms and even the definitions of sculpture in new directions. He experimented with a wide range of different materials, such as sculptures made from welded or assembled metal parts, painted metal constructions and bronze table-top pieces. His work is rooted in a radical exploration of space.

Anthony Caro - solo exhibition


The van Buuren Museum, in collaboration with the Caro Foundation and the Daniel Templon Gallery, has decided to exhibit the work of a major name, not only in English sculpture, but also on the international stage: Anthony Caro (1924-2013). The artist’s sculptures will grace this stunning setting during the spring and summer of 2017.
Even though modern and contemporary sculpture follows in the footsteps of the previous centuries, there is one significant difference: it has become autonomous and no longer fulfils a specific function. Modern-day artists express themselves in all freedom. Anthony Caro, much acclaimed for his innovative approach of removing the sculpture from its plinth and encouraging direct interaction between viewers and the work, exemplifies this trend magnificently. He saw sculpture as a form of art that opens up onto space.
Visitors will have an opportunity to lose the world in the paths of the park’s Labyrinth, to peacefully meditate in the Jardin du Cœur, both designed by René Pechère, and to explore the marvellously picturesque garden or stroll through the recently restored rose gardens Jules Buyssens originally created.
Galerie Templon will be presenting ‘Table Pieces and Late Sculptures’, an original collection of indoor sculptures by Sir Anthony Caro in Brussels from June 1 to July 22, echoing the exhibition of his works in the gardens of the Musée Van Buuren.
