Four sculptures by British artist Sir Anthony Caro are included in a major presentation of Color Field works from the collection of Audrey and David Mirvish at the Kawamura Memorial DIC Museum of Art in Sakura City, Japan. The exhibition brings together works by noteworthy artists from the Mirvish collection, providing a comprehensive overview of the American movement hailing from the 1950s and 1960s. Demonstrating the vibrancy of the movement through the intensely coloured canvases of Frank Stella, Kenneth Noland, Morris Louis and Helen Frankenthaler, the exhibtion highlights the vividity of Caro's painted steel sculputres from the 1960s, with the of the works Crossing, 1965, Red Splash, 1966, Prima Luce, 1966, and Trefoil, 1968 (pictured above).
