Lynn Chadwick

1914 – 2003

Born in London in 1914, English artist Lynn Chadwick is one of the world’s most prominent modern sculptors and renowned for his evolving series of bronze and stainless steel sculptures. Chadwick’s unique method instils his works with a sense of vital energy and movement, a concept which the artist refers to as “attitude”. His first major exhibition was held in 1950 at the Gimpel Fils gallery in London and garnered the artist critical attention. Chadwick went on to represent Britain at the 1956 Venice Biennale, where he became the then-youngest winner of its International Sculpture Prize. His work has since appeared at major institutions and galleries around the world, including the Tate Gallery in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Chadwick died in 2003, at the age of 88.
