The Fine Art Society has a long history of dealing in British sculpture of the 19th and 20th centuries, and more specifically with works by artists of the New Sculpture movement that took place in the closing decades of the 19th century in England.
The gallery was at the forefront of the movement when it staged "The First Exhibition of Statuettes by the Sculptors of Today, British and French" in 1902. Several exhibitions of British Sculpture followed at the gallery in 1986, 1992, 2008 and 2015, and this exhibition follows in that tradition.
The exhibition will focus on bronzes by some of the most established names of the New Sculpture movement such as Alfred Gilbert, George Frampton, Edward Onslow Ford, Edgar Bertram Mackennal, Alfred Stevens and William Reid Dick.
Sculptures by Gilbert Bayes, Barney Seale, Louis Richard Garbe, Anton Van Wouw and Francis Derwent Wood will also be on display.
