Tate stages birthday tribute for sculptor Caro
Monday 08 March 2004
Sir Anthony Caro, Britain's greatest living sculptor, was celebrating his 80th birthday yesterday with a tribute to his work at the Tate Britain gallery in London.
Sir Anthony, a one-time studio assistant to the sculptor Henry Moore, helped design the famous Millennium Bridge, crossing the Thames between Tate Modern and St Paul's Cathedral.
One of the works which helped him to gain international recognition, Sculpture Two, will be on display in Tate Britain's garden for the next two months. The painted and welded steel abstraction, produced in 1962, will later form part of a retrospective exhibition of Sir Anthony's work that will open at the gallery in January next year, prior to touring Europe. His birthday year will also be marked by an exhibition of new works opening at Kenwood House in Hampstead, north London, in July.
Sir Anthony, who was appointed CBE for his services to sculpting, said in an interview recently: "As we get old we should explore more. Even more."
