Display caption

Caro began to work in steel following a trip to America in 1959, often using pre-formed industrial sections such as girders and joists. In the mid Sixties he used steel, cut and sprayed with colour, in balanced constructions of planes and beams directly on the floor, bolted and welded together. The appearance of any Caro sculpture changes radically as one walks around it.
