Catalogue Note

"It takes only one great artist to keep a tradition alive. And through much of its history, the tradition of constructed sculpture has lived almost that precariously. Invented by Picasso... it was virtually reinvented by David Smith. Since the latter's death, its destiny has been very much in the hands of Anthony Caro" (William Rubin cited in: Exh. Cat., New York, The Museum of Modern Art, Anthony Caro, 1975, p. 15).
