This illustrated catalogue raisonne of his sculpture is published in a revised and expanded edition which incorporates Chadwicks complete sculptural oeuvre up to his death in 2003 and all known additions and updates to the catalogue information on his work to the end of 2005.

Chadwick began his career as an architectural draughtsman, but after the Second World War, he took up sculpture without any formal training. He initially concentrated on mobiles, and these were followed by rough-finished metal structures supported on thin legs. He established his international reputation in 1956, when he won the International Prize for Sculpture at the Venice Biennale. He consistently worked in welded iron and was constantly intrigued by human and animal forms: no matter how abstract the sculpture became at times, it was always firmly rooted in a deep understanding of the natural world.

This indispensable reference book includes a comprehensive list of Chadwicks exhibitions, the public collections he is represented in, and a full biography, alongside the fully illustrated complete catalogue of his sculpture. The introductory essay by Dennis Farr, which draws on interviews with the artist, examines Chadwicks development as a sculptor and his sculptural techniques.
