Biography

English sculptor who received a conservative training at the Royal Academy School in London between 1947 and 1952, Caro was, until 1953, Henry Moore's studio assistant. After being influenced during the 50s by Picasso, Bacon, De Kooning and Dubuffet, Caro gave up figuration and began producing abstract paintings on steel. He experimented with new materials and more spontaneous effects, above all through the classes he gave at St Martin's School of Art in London, where he taught part-time. At the end of the 60s, he made some small sculptures and produced his first one-man show at the Whitechapel Gallery, in London, which awoke tremendous critical interest. He took part in Documenta 3 and 4 in Kassel, in 1964 and 1968 respectively. In his sculpture since 1964, there is a strong connection with his work in the 50s. Caro has been a great influence on subsequent generations of artists in England.
