Christie’s is exhibiting a series of large-scale sculptures at Cass Sculpture Foundation, featuring works by renowned female artists such as Eva Rothschild and Diane Maclean.

Best known as the institution responsible for introducing Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth project, the West Sussex-based foundation is playing host to an exhibition of 17 magnificent pieces by leading sculptors. Highlights include Rothschild’s playful aluminium and steel structure, This and This and This (2013), composed of four interlocking triangles; Eduardo Paolozzi’s wood and bronze creation, London to Paris (2000), which depicts a flat wagon loaded with miscellaneous objects and dismembered limbs; and the beautifully engineered Pavilion (1993) by Thomas Heatherwick, the designer behind the 2012 Olympic Torch. Together, the pieces are testament to the quality and creativity of British sculpture.

The exhibition runs until 31 December at Cass Sculpture Foundation, New Barn Hill, Goodwood, West Sussex. An online auction of maquettes will take place later this autumn, with dates due to be announced shortly.
