Anthological exhibition dedicated to Anthony Caro at the Correr Museum in Venice

The first major Italian exhibition  - after the one held in the Mercati Traianei in Rome in 1992 - will be held in the Correr Museum in Venice, which overlooks a view of rare beauty on Piazza San Marco. This exhibition is dedicated to one of the best living sculptors: Sir Anthony Caro (New Malden, Surrey, 1924). The famous British artist, who has played a fundamental part in developing 20th century sculpture, returns to the lagoon with approximately 30 masterpieces covering fifty years of his career, after his previous participation to the Venice Art Biennales in 1958, 1966 and 1999. These include some important brush and ink-on-newspaper drawings stretching back to the beginning of his career. The visitor will be able to admire a collection of Paper Sculptures and, most importantly some of his most famous large steel masterpieces, such as Red Splash (1996), Garland (1970), Cadence (1968/1972) to the more recent Venetian and River Song (2011-2012). This unique event will allow visitors to retrace the career of this artist genius: from his first works, developed under the influence of his teacher Henry Moore, to the extraordinary innovation process that he began in the Sixties (The Whitechapel Gallery prefatory in 1963), right up to his more recent experiences. Opening hours: 10 am – 7 pm (ticket office 10 am – 6 pm) TICKETS Entrance with museum ticket or with single ticket (only for the exhibition) Single ticket (exhibition only): 8 euro
