Lynn Russell Chadwick

(1914-2003), Sculptor

Sitter in 17 portraits
Artist associated with 1 portrait
Chadwick was drawn towards the idea of being a sculptor after seeing the work of Jacob Epstein. On the advice of his parents, he began training to be an architect but part-way through his studies he decided against a career in architecture. After the war, during which he flew convoy planes, he began to create mobile sculptures to be used as features on exhibition stands. In 1952 he was brought to international attention when he took part in the seminal exhibition New Aspects of British Sculpture at the Venice Biennale alongside seven other young sculptors. The group's work was described by the critic Herbert Read as 'the geometry of fear,' a term which came to define Chadwick and his contemporaries.
