Marking the centenary of the birth of one of Britain’s greatest sculptors, Osborne Samuel is pleased to present a comprehensive retrospective exhibition of work by Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003). Coinciding with this important anniversary show, the gallery is also launching a major new monograph on the artist, written by Michael Bird and published by Lund Humphries.

Featuring exceptional and rare works from each decade of Chadwick’s distinguished 50-year career, the exhibition will illustrate the complete evolution of the artist’s highly individual working method and distinctive style. Alongside early mobile constructions, the show will feature some of Chadwick’s first iron and plaster sculptures and significant early bronzes such as the Watcher and Stranger series. In addition, the exhibition will present the iconic Teddy Boy and Girl sculptures from the 1950s, when Chadwick was leader of the group of British sculptors who took the art world by storm, dominating the Venice Biennales of 1952 and 1956.

Works in the exhibition will come from as far away as Australia and Canada, and several have never been exhibited publicly before. The majority of sculptures in the exhibition will be for sale, displayed alongside rare photographs of the artist at work, taken by celebrated photographer David Farrell (1919-2013).
