Sea Music may be seen as a forerunner of this and other iconic public sculptural projects. But only thanks to the extraordinary generosity and determination of a group of committed individuals and organisations did this major site-specific work by one of the greatest sculptors of the late twentieth century find its way onto the quayside in the town of Poole. The fascinating story of how this happened is told here in Alastair Sooke's illuminating essay, and recalled by Caro himself in a previously unpublished note written in 1991.
