British, 1924-2013. Anthony Caro is widely regarded as the cardinal force behind abstract modern sculpture. After serving as an assistant to Henry Moore and producing his own figurative sculpture, Caro traveled to the United States in the late 1950s where he met David Smith and Kenneth Noland which sparked his move to abstract sculpture. By 1960, Caro was producing large sculptures composed of steel, wood, rope and other discarded materials. Later, he taught at Saint Martin's School of Art in London and Bennington College in Vermont.
