Abstraction and Reality PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Abstraction and Reality free pdf Ivor Roberts-Jones (1913 - 1996) was one of the finest sculptors working in Britain during the twentieth century. This book is the first in-depth study of this compelling artist who was responsible for the magisterial statue of Sir Winston Churchill which stands in London's Parliament Square. It incorporates a wealth of new research and never before published images of the artist's fascinating and wide-ranging output, including his numerous major public works - such as a haunting figure of controversial painter Augustus John in Fordingbridge, Hampshire, and the doomed World War I poet Rupert Brooke in Rugby, Warwickshire. It also provides the first detailed examination of Roberts-Jones's standing as one of Britain's greatest portrait sculptors for whom a wide array of impressive personalities sat. Finally it explores his significant achievement as a sculptor of wild animals and his lifelong fascination with depicting the blind and visually impaired.
