LYNN CHADWICK "RECLINING FIGURES" LITHO, 1971
Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003) is one of Britain's leading Modernist sculptors. He revitalized bronze sculpture with his signature and highly stylized forms that both embraced and evaded figuration.
Chadwick had initially studied architecture, which trained him to be an excellent draftsman. His early artwork were mobiles first created at the end of the 1940's. 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 1960's 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.
This evocative and instantly recognizable print is a fantastic piece for a young collector. It was created at a high point in the artist's impressive career - just as he started to introduce drapery on his famed figures.
