Considered one of the most influential practitioners of modern sculpture, Anthony Caro’s oeuvre explores the possibilities of three-dimensional abstraction. His large, floor-based works make use of a variety of materials, from wood to rope, though he is best known for his monumental rusted steel pieces. Caro’s Minimalist sculptures are finished with variegated textures and are architectural in form and scale. Odalisque (1984) represents Caro’s foray into sculpture made from found objects—such as buoys, dock bollards, shipping chains, and railroad-tie sections—which has been the hallmark of the artist’s more recent work. Caro worked as an assistant to Henry Moore in the 1950s, and was influenced by David Smith after being introduced in the early 1960s.
