Sir Anthony Caro, who died following a heart attack last week, aged 89, was widely regarded as Britain’s greatest sculptor.
He was born in New Malden, Surrey, in 1924. Although his great-grandfather had been a rabbi, he did not have a strict Jewish upbringing and remembered struggling with Hebrew lessons. He was educated at Charterhouse and Christ’s College, Cambridge.
