Artist of the moment…..Lynn Chadwick

Lynn Chadwick was an internationally renowned sculptor born in London, England in the year 1914.¬† After looking at the wonderful style of this artist I have given the term ” midevil modernism” to his style. Many works are actually installed in the grounds of castles! Chadwick’s style¬† is a wonderful mix of the figure brought into a very abstract shape that gives these works of bronze and/ or steel an incredible sense of movement. The artist began his figurative works made with metals in the 1940s.

Price range information: Works range from $10,000 to $750,000.

For his collegiate education Chadwick attended Merchant Taylors’ School where he studied architecture. The artist was trained in both watercolour and oils.
