Lynn Chadwick (1914–2003) was one of the most important sculptors of his generation and one of the masters of mid-20th century British sculpture.

His talent first gained international recognition in 1952, when he was a member of the collective that introduced the new generation of British sculptors to the world at large in the Venice Biennale, where he was to receive the International Sculpture Award two editions later, in 1956.
Retrospective for two Gardens, a project devised for the Museo del Giardino di Boboli and the Giardino Bardini, comprises a total of twenty-four sculptures spread out over the two parks, creating an itinerary designed to focus attention on the two sites' orographical, monumental and scenographic features.
