Internationally Renown Sculptor Tony Caro, (Anthony Caro, (Sir Anthony Caro OM , CBE), 

'The King Of Art', died yesterday afternoon at 4 pm in the afternoon, 23rd October 2013 aged 89.  


He has been part of my life since the 1960's when my mother read out a headline in the Toronto Telegram Newspaper -  

"Anthony Caro Takes Sculpture Off the Plinth" - and explained to me what that magical mystifying phrase meant.  

Once 'Early One Morning', came off the plinth, sculpture never looked back


Tony had complete integrity and the highest of standards in art,

yet he was also amazingingly creative in Fun. The parties, the occasions were jewels in our existence.

The banquet on top of the Trajan Market in Rome was just one of the many instances when

Anthony Caro OM, CBE raised us all up with him, feasting with the gods.

Hugely inspirational, supportive to so many artists, a pivotally great legend in the Art world,

irreplaceable as a friend. We can but mourn his passing and give praise for his extraordinary, talented self.

With great admiration, In Homage and love,   C. Morey de Morand
