BLAIN|DI DONNA & BLAIN|SOUTHERN TO STAGE 3 EXHIBITIONS OF SCULPTOR LYNN CHADWICK'S WORK IN LONDON, BERLIN AND NEW YORK

The directors of Blain|Di Donna and Blain|Southern are delighted to announce three simultaneous exhibitions of Lynn Chadwick's work across London, Berlin and New York in Spring 2014.

Blain|Southern London: 1st May - 28th June 2014
Blain|Southern Berlin: 3rd May - 26th July 2014
Blain|Di Donna, New York: 29th May - 25th July 2014

This will be the most substantial survey of the artist's practice ever undertaken. In addition to the exhibitions, the Royal Academy of Arts, London, will display a group of large-scale sculptures in its courtyard. Chadwick was elected Senior Royal Academician in 2001.

Lynn Chadwick, whose estate is now represented exclusively by Blain|Southern and Blain|Di Donna, was one of the leading sculptors of his generation, and his sculptures feature in the collections of most major museums, including MoMA, New York; Tate Gallery, London and Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris. The artist was born in Barnes, London, in 1914 and died at his home Lypiatt Park, Gloucestershire, in 2003 aged 88.

Chadwick is known primarily for his metal works that were often inspired by the human form and the natural world, but which also at times veered close to abstraction. Producing sculptures that were defined through their exploration of form, stance, line, balance and attitude, Chadwick established a new method of working that marked a departure from previously dominant sculptural traditions.

The three exhibitions will be accompanied by a new fully illustrated publication on the artist.
