a striking seven tonne steel sculpture has been installed outside Leeds Art Gallery to celebrate the work of Sir Anthony Caro.

Aurora, which spans five metres wide, has been positioned in the city ahead of Europe’s largest celebration of the artist’s work in Yorkshire.

The showcase has been organised by the Yorkshire Sculpture Triangle, which opens July 18 across four museums in the region.

Four of Yorkshire’s most influential visual arts organisations – the Henry Moore Institute, The Hepworth Wakefield, Leeds Art Gallery and Yorkshire Sculpture Park – celebrate the career of Caro with a summer programme of exhibitions.
