Beyond Limits – Part 2

Some more pictures from Beyond Limits at Chatsworth. Two very different pieces from husband and wife François-Xavier and Claude Lalanne.

Pomme de New York

This would look lovely in any light, at any time of year, but there was something very fitting about this giant golden windfall amongst all the autumn leaves.

A Bear Behind

Le Tres Grand Ours II

If you go down to the woods today…

… you will find a giant bear looking at you.

At 3m tall, this bear certainly is very large. And very excellent. I love his slightly stylised form.

All my pictures from the 2008 Beyond Limits exhibition are here. The 2007 pictures are here and 2006 is here.

Simon Stock, Deputy Director of Impressionist & Modern Art at Sotheby’s, presents a video showcasing some of the sculptures. It’s worth watching, but be quick – I don’t know how long it will stay on Sotheby’s site once the exhibition has finished.

Download a free (woohoo!) 16 page catalogue containing pictures of all the sculptures with background information. A much thicker 196 page catalogue, complete with stunning photography, is available from Chatsworth – but that one would set you back £20.
