Anthony Caro, British sculptor dies...

Anthony Caro, 'Early One Morning' 1962
Anthony Caro, British sculptor dies..here is a geat little video here from the RA show a few years ago..

What I think is interesting about Caro, is that he studies engineering, eventually took up sculpture in a figurative style, became an assistant to Henry Moore, travels to America, realises his direction is through abstraction from visiting Kenneth Noland and David Smith, changes direction when he comes back and still makes it as a British sculptor in the UK!
