Widely recognized as one of the most significant sculptors of the 20th century, Anthony Caro (1924–2013) first rose to prominence in the 1960s with imposing painted steel sculptures freed from the pedestal, exhibited directly on the floor. This catalog features work spanning the British artist’s six-decade career.

“Through the ages,” recounts Britain's foremost sculptor, Anthony Caro, “civilizations have often been subjected to unexpected assaults from warrior tribes. This happened when the Tartars overran Asia and the Huns and Goths plundered Rome. My Barbarians allude to this history.” Comprised of six life-size figures on horseback and one female figure in a chariot, Caro's recently-completed sculpture evokes an epic scale of history. Made of wood, leather, steel and ceramic elements, The Barbarians marks a new departure in the artist's distinguished career.
