Sculptures by Lynn Chadwick in the Royal Academy courtyard, Piccadilly, London

These fabulous beasties by sculptor Lynn Chadwick are on show outside London's Royal Academy until 16 May.

Concurrent exhibitions in London, Berlin and New York are between them showing work from the whole of Chadwick's 50-year career.

The London show, on until 28 June, is at
4 Hanover Square
London, W1S 1BP

This leg of the show features a range of seminal bronzes from the 1950s and 1960s, amongst them Teddy Boy and Girl (1955) – one of the works which earned Chadwick the International Sculpture Prize at the Venice Biennale in 1956 – as well as the monumental Stranger III (1959). These, along with Beast XVI (1959), Black Beast (1960) and
Moon of Alabama (1957), serve to illustrate not only Chadwick’s unerring interest in human and animal forms, but the mainstay of his artistic practice; the manner in which he blurred the lines between figuration and abstraction.

While Chadwick is best known for his bronze works, on occasion he worked with other materials. To reflect this, his group of Formica on wood ‘Pyramid’ and ‘Split’ sculptures – clean geometric shapes produced in 1966 will be shown in Blain Southern's main galleries. Downstairs a group of welded stainless steel beasts will represent Chadwick’s late exploration of the medium of steel in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The other parts of this exhibition are at

Blain Southern Gallery Potsdamer Straße 77–87, 10785 Berlin, 3 May–26 July

Blain DiDonna, The Carlyle Hotel, 981 Madison Avenue, New York, NY 10075, 29 May –25 July 2014
