Crouching Beast II 1990 Lion I, 1990

Lynn Chadwick: Beasts

11 May - 31 August 2019


As part of Norfolk & Norwich Festival 2018, the Sainsbury Centre welcomes three striking sculptures by leading British sculptor Lynn Chadwick (1914–2003) to take up residence in its east end garden.  

These three “Beasts” (Crouching Beast II, Lion I and Beast Alerted I) are monumental animals captured in various states of action, made of welded stainless-steel sheets.

They are the latest addition to the Sainsbury Centre Sculpture Park, situated across 320 acres of natural and the built environment on the UEA campus. The Park combines iconic architecture, art and nature in an outdoor space free for everyone to enjoy.

Generously lent by the Chadwick Estate and organised in association with Blain|Southern.
