Beasts- Lynn Chadwick

Beasts- Lynn Chadwick


Three striking sculptures by leading British sculptor Lynn Chadwick (1914 – 2003) will take up residence in the Sainsbury Centre Sculpture Park as part of the gallery’s 40th anniversary celebrations.

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.

Situated across 320 acres of natural and built environment on the UEA campus, the Sculpture Park combines iconic architecture, art and nature in an outdoor space free for everyone to enjoy.
