isaachammo1990@hotmail.co.uk Chadwick had been a sculptor for only six years when, in 1956, he won the International Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale, triumphing over more established artists who included Germaine Richier, Giacometti and César. The sensation caused by this award eclipses the recent fuss over the YBAs, for Chadwick became a national hero and an international star. He had already showed at Venice in 1952 with the YBAs of the day, Kenneth Armitage, Reg Butler, Eduardo Paolozzi and William Turnbull. In 1953 he was included in the Salon de Mai in Paris and in 1955 in the “New Decade” exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (Moma) in New York; following 1956 public collections and private collectors vied with each other to buy his work. His celebrity was only increased by his rackety private life, for Chadwick was a largerthan-life character, an artist with the charisma and personal magWnetism of a Rodin or, closer to home, Augustus John. Lynn Chadwick was born in Barnes, southwest London, shortly after the beginning of the First World War. His father was an engineer, whose profession greatly influenced technical aspects of his son’s later career (as Chadwick’s

did that of one of his sons, the sculptor Daniel Chadwick). Following his time at Merchant Tailors’ School, Chadwick spent the late 1930s working as an architectural draughtsman. (He continued to draw throughout his career, making working drawings, of course, but sometimes also producing delicate depictions of his massive late sculptures in surprisingly romantic positions, and occasionally carefully observed botanical specimens.) Lynn Chadwick went to work for the architect Rodney Thomas, whose close acquaintance with contemporary European architecture influenced Chadwick. Thomas had experimented with balanced beam mobiles. Chadwick had the idea of suspending pieces from the ceiling so that air currents moved them. At the time he did not know that the American Alexander Calder had made mobiles using the same principles. Chadwick had a twinkle in his eyes, a funny, frequently heard laugh, and a fund of funny tales. One of the best was the story of how, at the time of the 1972 Henry Moore exhibition at Michelangelo’s Forte di Belvedere on the edge of Florence, he and Eva were lodged in a nearby castle. The price of this extravagant accommodation was that they were expected to play host to Princess Margaret, Lord Snowdon and their entourage, which meant enlisting the local peasantry to provide both food and (additional) furniture fit for royalty.

Never Neglect

Humanity

The career of Lynn Chadwick is a lesson in the ephemerality of artistic fashion. In the last 20 years, although his work continued to sell for high prices in Europe, Japan and America, Chadwick was underappreciated in his native country. Yet, in the 1950s, his generation of sculptors younger than Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth had put British sculpture back on the world artistic map. Indeed, Chadwick himself was then better known in the international art world than Damien Hirst and the YBAs are today.
