The National Trust and Blain|Southern present Lynn Chadwick at Cliveden, an exhibition of sculptures by the internationally renowned British artist, Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003).
The artist’s large-scale bronze and steel sculptures are installed over twelve sites across Cliveden’s Grade I listed grounds. The exhibition invites visitors to view the famous gardens in a new light, reframed by iconic figurative works by one of Britain’s most significant sculptors.
Chadwick shared the view that the placement of monumental sculpture enhanced both the landscape and the work. In this latter part of his career, he created his own sculpture park at his home in Gloucestershire, placing his monumental works outdoors with dedication and precision, to ensure a harmonious balance between the land and sculpture. Chadwick’s approach is echoed in the exhibition at Cliveden, a property with a rich tradition of siting sculpture outdoors.
Lynn Chadwick at Cliveden is at Cliveden, Buckinghamshire, 2 May - 14 October 2018.
