PROVENANCE: The Caroline and Ralph Brown Collection. Purchased from Hans Coper at Digswell.
The sculptor Ralph Brown was one of the first three artist invited to become artists in residence at Digswell in 1958, alongside Hans Coper and Peter Collingwood. Ralph and his wife Caroline were at Digsell between 1958 and 1963 and became great friends with Hans in that time. They were often in and out of each other's studios and managed to persuade Hans to reluctantly sell one or two of his works to them on occasion. This work was purchased shortly before they and Hans left Digswell in 1963.

CONDITION: The piece has undergone professional restoration to cracks and hairlines - please contact us for a detailed condition report
