Anthony Caro: The Barbarians
“Through the ages,” recounts Britain's foremost sculptor, Anthony Caro, “civilizations have often been subjected to unexpected assaults from warrior tribes. This happened when the Tartars overran Asia and the Huns and Goths plundered Rome. My Barbarians allude to this history.” Comprised of six life-size figures on horseback and one female figure in a chariot, Caro's sculpture evokes an epic scale of history. Made of wood, leather, steel and ceramic elements, The Barbarians marks a new departure in the artist's distinguished career.
