Edited by Gillian Whiteley

This is a timely critical overview of the work of Ralph Brown who has been making sculpture based around the human figure for over sixty years.  Within the modern
figurative tradition established by Auguste Rodin and re-invented by twentieth-century sculptors such as Henry Moore – an early supporter of Brown’s work – it was the raw expressionistic figures of Germaine Richier and the humanism of Italian sculptors such as Marino Marini which led Brown to ally himself with a ‘Mediterranean aesthetic’.

Gillian Whiteley provides an overview, Jon Wood focuses on the artist’s sojourn in Paris in the early 1950s, John le Carré comments from the collector’s perspective and
Rungwe Kingdon offers an insight into the world of casting.
