A self-described “English-speaking, itinerant European sculptor,” Barry Flanagan is best known for his irreverent yet elegant bronze sculptures of long limbed hares in all states of motion and rest. Moving away from his earlier Post-Minimalist style, in which he combined and arranged common materials in unusual ways, Flanagan started sculpting hares in the late 1970s. He was keenly attuned to the history of his own medium and often made tongue-in-cheek references to sculptural masters and masterworks. For example, in Larger Thinker on Computer (2003), he pays humorous homage to Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker (1902) by casting a hare in the famous pose but placing him on top of a computer.
