Sir Anthony Caro

Table Piece CCCLXXXVIII

About this artwork

Caro began making small 'Table Piece 'sculptures in 1966 and since then has made several hundred. This sculpture is number 388 in the series. While Caro made his large, floor-placed sculptures in a studio, the Table Pieces were made at home in his garage. Owing to their manageable scale, they have the freedom of drawings, yet they are not models for larger works. Entirely abstract, they balance light and heavy elements and are composed of a remarkable vocabulary of forms: interwoven lines, circles, pauses and full stops.
