“In the 1980s and 1990s, many people felt that Chadwick's work had failed to evolve - but they simply were not looking. His Stairs, of 1991, with two figures passing in opposite directions, is one of the most telling representations both of movement and of human relationships in sculpture. Similarly his High Wind IV, of 1995, emphasises that he, in his work, had retained in old age all the vigour and wit of his best known pieces of sculpture from his earlier phases.”
