How did sculptors react to the Great War? Men came back broken from the front, and sculptors responded by representing the broken and fragmented human figure, or by compensating and celebrating the heroic form, by retreating into abstraction, and by commemorating soldiers in memorials. You will find out about German and English sculptors, women and men, ‘victors’ and ‘losers’.

Admission is by token, 1 per person, available at the Courtyard Entrance from 12.45 on the day of the talk. Induction loop available.
