D. Blume, Anthony Caro Catalogue Raisonne, Vol. IX, Cologne, 1993 (no. 2002, p. 69)
With Redoubt, Anthony Caro cast found objects and used them to produce interesting shapes inside and outside the sculpture. A found object is the name given by artists to objects that have an intrinsic quality or feel. The artist may be inspired by the object or incorporate the object into their sculpture. In Redoubt he cast found objects in bronze and used them to create movement within his work. Unlike many sculptors’ works, Caro’s sculptures do not use plinths and sit directly on the floor. This invites the viewer to interact with the work. Caro studied sculpture at the Royal Academy in London from 1947 to 1952. Early in his career Caro became an assistant for Henry Moore. Later he worked as a tutor at St Martin’s School of Art in London. Caro also worked with Norman Foster and Chris Wise on the design for the London Millennium footbridge.
