Anthony Caro (Sir Anthony Caro OM, CBE) is internationally recognised as a major figure in contemporary sculpture.

He is best known for his large, often brightly coloured abstract sculptures standing directly on the ground and by dispensing with the plinth, he invites viewers to engage with his works on a one-to-one basis. He has also made a number of works using rusting steel that changes over time as the weather affects the sculpture’s surface. His work is in collections all over the world.

This piece, is made from oiled mild steel and standing just over two metres high was originally situated at Stuart House in the City Centre, before moving to Thorpe Meadows. After several years in storage, the piece has found a new home outside the Key Theatre.
