Life, Action and Sentiment: John Flaxman on the art of modern sculpture
Strang Print Room |
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
This exhibition celebrates the 200th anniversary of John Flaxman's appointment as the first Professor of Sculpture at the Royal Academy. On display are the many preparatory sketches Flaxman drew to work through his ideas on how to convey life, action and sentiment in three-dimensional form. Kept for reference at his studio, then given to UCL by his family, these informal linear drawings are shown together for the first time. They reveal Flaxman's almost obsessive dedication to his cause, the creation of a modern school of sculpture.
The exhibition is open Monday - Friday, 1.00pm - 5.00pm.
