This latest addition to the celebrated Public Sculpture of Britain series provides a highly illustrated guide to the public sculpture of south London. From Battersea to Lambeth South London has a incredible wealth of public sculpture. This richly illustrated book includes work by some of the most influential British and continental sculptors of the last one hundred years, including Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. At Guy’s hospital John Bacon the elder’s Monument to Thomas Guy of 1779, certainly his masterpiece, reflects the new philanthropy of the period. Eric Kennington’s Memorial to the 24th Division is one of the most memorable war memorials in London. Henry Moore’s Three Standing Figures in Battersea Park was the first significant public sculpture to be erected in London after the second world war. Its stormy reception is closely described in this volume. Moore’s Two Piece Reclining Figure No. 3 in the Brandon Estate was one of the first examples of public sculpture used by a local authority for social regeneration. The tenth volume in Liverpool University Press’s highly acclaimed and prize-winning Public Sculpture of Britain series, Public Sculpture of South London will be an incomparable resource for both armchair and actual travellers as well as for English historians and art scholars alike.
