Lynn Chadwick Sculptures In Landmark Giacometti Exhibition

Lynn Chadwick

Sculptures by Lynn Chadwick feature alongside works by Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, Henry Moore, Frank Auerbach and others in a landmark exhibition dedicated to the work of Alberto Giacometti. Commemorating the 50th anniversary of Giacometti’s death, a significant component of the exhibition examines his impact on British art in the post-war period.

Two Chadwick sculptures, Maquette II Inner Eye and The Stranger are included, both conceived in the 1950s and connected to the works in Chadwick’s exhibition at the 1956 Venice Biennale; where he was famously awarded the International Prize for Sculpture despite being nominated alongside more established artists including Giacometti. Chadwick was the youngest ever recipient of the award and the prize launched him onto the international stage.

Alberto Giacometti: A Line Through Time, is at The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Art, Norwich from 23 April - 29 August 2016.
