AboutThis important exhibition dedicated to the leading post-war sculptor Hubert Dalwood (1924 - 1976) details his exceptional and distinctive career. Dalwood received considerable critical success and acclaim during the late 1950s and early 1960s for his work that was preoccupied by form, the visual quality of materials and a sense of allegory. Dalwood, an ardent teacher who was Head of Sculpture at Hornsey College of Art, died after a short illness aged only 52. Three years after his dead, the Arts Council organised a retrospective tour of his work that began at the Hayward Gallery, London. In the catalogue for this show, Norbert Lynton describes Dalwood as 'One of the most original and inventive minds in the field of modern sculpture, an artist with a pronounced feeling for joy and for drama, the acitivating spirit behind many an art venture'.
Dalwood's work has been exhibited at Roche Court for many years and we are pleased to be presenting this body of work in the park and gallery.
