About

A sculpture by Anthony Caro. "Table Piece CXXXIX #147" is a contemporary minimalist sculpture, varnished steel in a warm palette of browns by British artist Anthony Caro. Sir Anthony Caro (1924 – 2013) is credited as a pivotal character in the development of twentieth century sculpture. Caro’s 1963 exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery in London is considered a breakthrough in the history of sculpture. By taking large scale, fully abstract metal sculptures and placing them directly on the ground Caro began to activate the space around the sculpture, encouraging a more interactive relationship with the spectator and blurring the boundary between artistic and non-artistic space.
