Lynn Chadwick (1914 – 2003) has been one of the most important English sculptors of the late 20th century, combining imagination and high technical skill to create his works, like his famous semi-abstract bronze and steel sculptures. Chadwick’s work is part of some of the major collections around the world, including the MoMA in New York, the Tate Gallery in London and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. This summer, until August 30, Florence celebrates Chadwich with the exhibition "Retrospective for two gardens." The beautiful, and very well known, Boboli Gardens and the beautiful, and much less known, Bardini Garden, welcome 24 sculptures to create a fascinating dialogue between the work of Chadwick and the monumental and scenic characteristics of the two historical gardens.
