London – Canary Wharf (Couple on Seat by Lynn Chadwick)

This pair of figures are located in the heart of the Canary Wharf development and, like many things, they confused me as I knew that I had seen something similar before. And, this is why I keep a blog, to remember the things I keep forgetting. I was able to establish that I had seen the Pair of Walking Figures before back in Norwich, at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.

For rush hour Canary Wharf, it wasn’t the busiest…..

Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003) produced numerous sculptures with a heritage similar to that of Henry Moore, with this design created in 1984. There are six bronze castings and they were produced in the Morris Singer Foundry in London, with one of them selling for £1.4 million in 2006.
