Trajan Market

Caro Retrospective Trajan Market Rome 02

Sir Anthony Caro – Retrospective, Rome

The Trajan Market in Rome formed the backdrop for the 70 year retrospective of Caro’s fantastic sculptures. The model was about 25’ long x 9’ tall and came apart so Caro could climb in and move the small models of his steel sculptures around to get them in the best location. This worked out very well as it was considerably easier to move small plastic models than a 6 to 10 ton steel sculpture. Caro was also able to quickly visualize which sculptures worked well with others and how the whole would thing would work in this most incredible location.

Interestingly enough the model was also exhibited on site and garnered a lot of positive interest and financial support.
