Lot Essay

We are very grateful to Sarah Chadwick for her assistance in preparing this catalogue entry.

“Chadwick has always been intrigued by movement, either actual or implied, in his sculpture. From his early mobiles to his dancing Teddy Boy and Girl series of the 1950s to his cloaked walking women with windswept hair of the 1980s, he has explored figures in motion. Sometimes their cloaks and draperies flow out in the wind from behind them, or are caught by a gust and wrap themselves around the figures.”

- (D. Farr & E. Chadwick, op. cit., 2006, p. 15).
