LONDON.- The directors of Blain|Southern and Blain|Di Donna announced that the galleries will be exclusively representing the estate of Lynn Chadwick.

The artist’s widow, Eva Chadwick, said: “After nearly fifty years of working with my husband Lynn Chadwick’s sculptures, I feel the time has come to hand over to Blain/Southern and Blain/Di Donna, international galleries that will be better able to further his reputation in Europe and in the USA.”

Sarah Chadwick, the artist’s daughter, will continue to assist Blain|Southern and Blain|Di Donna, while his other children Simon, Daniel, and Sophie Chadwick will also contribute to the family enterprise.

Eva Chadwick added, “We all feel confident that the estate of Lynn Chadwick will be managed and enhanced with the Blain/Southern and Blain/Di Donna partnership, and wish them all the best.”

Blain|Southern was founded in 2010 by Harry Blain and Graham Southern. Its London gallery is based in Hanover Square, and a further space is located in Berlin. It works with many leading contemporary artists, including Jonas Burgert, Francesco Clemente, Mat Collishaw, Jannis Kounellis, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, Bill Viola and Lawrence Weiner.

Blain|Di Donna has been operational since November 2010, and is based at 981 Madison Avenue on the second floor of the Carlyle Hotel. It has staged many successful shows, including major surveys of René Magritte, André Masson, Jean Arp and Paul Delvaux.

Harry Blain, director of Blain|Southern, said, “We are delighted to be representing the estate of Lynn Chadwick, who is without doubt one of the foremost contemporary artists of the last six decades. Everyone at the gallery is looking forward to working closely with the Chadwick family on various projects which will bring his work to an even wider audience and greater recognition.”

Lynn Chadwick was born in Barnes, London, in 1914 and died at his home Lypiatt Park, Gloucestershire, in 2003 aged 88. He was one of the leading British sculptors of post-war Britain, known primarily for his metal works that were often inspired by the human form and the natural world, but which also at times veered close to abstraction. Producing sculptures that were defined through their exploration of form, stance, line, balance and attitude, Chadwick defined a new method of working that marked a departure from previously dominant sculptural traditions. Embracing iron structures, plaster filler and industrial compounds, he produced works that explored the dematerialism of mass and the vitality of line.

Chadwick’s first mobile sculpture was shown in the window at Gimpel Fils gallery, London, in 1949, closely followed by his first solo exhibition, which was held at the same gallery a year later. His work was first presented to an international audience in 1952, when he exhibited at that year’s Venice Biennale alongside a new generation of British sculptors. It was four years later in the 1956 Venice Biennale that Chadwick won the coveted International Prize for Sculpture, prevailing over Alberto Giacometti, and making him the youngest post-war recipient of the prize. Chadwick went on to secure an international reputation with numerous solo exhibitions at venues including the Museum of Modern Art, Kamakura, Japan (1962); Knoedler Galleries, New York, US (1965); Wolpe Gallery, Cape Town, South Africa (1975); Yorkshire Sculpture Park, UK (1991); and Galerie Marbeau, Paris, France (1992). More recently a major retrospective of Chadwick’s work was exhibited at Tate Britain in 2003. Lynn Chadwick: Evolution in Sculpture is currently on show at the Abbott Hall Gallery, Cumbria, until 15 June 2013.

Today, the artist’s works are featured in numerous public collections including the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark; Centre Georges Pompidou, France; Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Italy; Moderna Museet, Sweden; National Galleries of Scotland; Royal Academy of Arts, Tate and the British Council, UK; and the Museum of Modern Art, New York, US.
