Sir Anthony Caro Dies

Sir Anthony Caro has died of a heart attack at the age of 89 (CLICK). The photo shows his Blazon on the Roof Garden of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2011. He was much loved by the Anti-art Establishment. Sir Nicholas Serota, "The King of Crap", says Caro was "one of the outstanding sculptors of the past 50 years". I regard "sculptor" as a misnomer to describe a man who welded girders and other bits of metal into abstract shapes and painted them lurid colours. Engineer maybe? CLICK for a BBC slide show.
