The career of Anthony Caro, who has died aged 89, was so enduring and substantial that it long seemed part of our permanent British art landscape. We are good at that – ignoring our best artists until we can take them for granted. There was a short period, at the start of the 1960s, when his new work drew a lot of attention, at a time when British art was erupting with new energies and optimism: St Ives going strong, plus situation painting, pop art, op art. By the mid-60s he was firmly established. His work was being shown, discussed and beginning to be bought on both sides of the Atlantic. The Guardian online 24th October 2013
