This book provides a comprehensive survey of the surprisingly rich heritage of publicly accessible monuments and sculpture in two counties. Leicestershire, although endowed with relatively few examples of portrait statues, has nevertheless an engagingly diverse and significant collection of other types. One category in which Leicestershire can truly be considered without rival is the collection of twentieth-century sculpture sited in its schools and colleges and featuring works by some of the leading British sculptors of their day, including Lynn Chadwick, Barbara Hepworth and William Pye. Rutland, England’s smallest county, is home to Alexander’s The Great Tower, which was reputed at its unveiling in 1980 to be ‘the largest bronze sculpture of modern times’.
