Sir Thomas Brock: Forgotten Sculptor.

V&A Daytime Talk. Thursday 8 November, talk 14.00 – 15.00, refreshments 15.00 – 15.30.

As one of the leading sculptors of the New Sculpture movement inspired by Lord Leighton, Thomas Brock is best known for creating the Queen Victoria Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace. Other London works include Captain Cook, Sir Henry Irving and Sir John Millais. The writer and scholar John Sankey will discuss Brock’s life in light of an unpublished typewritten memoir acquired by the V&A Library in 1986 and now identified as being by the sculptor’s son Frederick.

Cost £12 (including tea and coffee). The lecture is open to non-members of the V&A.
