Lynn Chadwick Walking Woman
Maquette II Walking Woman 1984, a patinated bronze figure by Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003). A study of a woman walking, dress billowing in the wind.
Lynn Chadwick’s rise to international fame began when he exhibited at the 1952 Venice Biennale; in 1956 he was awarded its International Sculpture Prize, becoming its then-youngest recipient. Trained as an architectural draughtsman, his expressionistic work in welded iron and bronze – “three dimensional drawing” – stood in contrast to traditional carved wood or stone sculpture. He was named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1964 and a Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres in 1993, and his work can be found in many major collections.
This piece was previously owned by Dennis Farr, museum curator and art historian, an outstanding propogandist for 20thC British art.
