This summer a monumental three-figure sculpture by Georg Baselitz will be installed in the John Madejski Garden. It has been created in response to Antonio Canova’s neoclassical sculpture 'The Three Graces' (1814-1817) recently redisplayed at the V&A. Baselitz’s Untitled (2013), standing over 3.5 meters high is a contemporary twist on Canova’s carved marble figure group.
Untitled (2013) is part of a series of wooden and, more recently, bronze sculptures created by Baselitz over the last 30 years, always produced in tandem with his paintings. They are inspired by African sculpture, medieval carvings and folk art.
