Lynn Chadwick



Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003) was one of Britain's leading Modernist sculptors. He revitalized bronze sculpture with his signature and highly stylized forms that both embraced and expanded figuration.  

Chadwick had initially studied architecture, and thanks to his studies he became an excellent draftsman. His early artwork, from the 1940's, focused on mobiles. By 1952 Chadwick was part of a group of British sculptors exhibiting at the Venice Biennale. Four years later, he would represent the UK and win the highly prestigious International Sculpture Prize. By this point, he was informally anointed as the successor to Henry Moore. 

In the mid-1960s Chadwick introduced his highly-stylized and iconic figures. Since the onset of his career, he was considered a significant voice in abstract sculpture, so this was a brave and radical evolution.  

The walking woman is a recurring motif throughout Chadwick’s oeuvre. The artist revisits and reimagines this heroine in various scales and variaitons. This instantly recognizable sculpture is a striking example of Chadwick’s signature aesthetic. The strong, angular figure is juxtaposed with a billowing cape, creating the illusion of a gliding stride that evokes a sense of confidence and mystery. It is worth highlighting that this particular sculpture has a sharp triangular head, in excellent condition, finished in a polished mirror bronze.

Lynn Chadwick has work featured in the collections of major institutions and galleries around the world including Art Gallery of Ontario, Arts Council of Great Britain, and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection to mention a few.
