    AN exhibition of Modern British Sculptors at Robert Bowman, Duke St., St. James’s, London in March 2012 includes work by Kenneth Armitage, Michael Ayrton, Lynn Chadwick, Jacob Epstein, Elizabeth Frink, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore.

    This year marks the 60th anniversary of the 1952 Venice Biennale. That show introduced a new group of young British sculptors who had emerged the in the wake of the older Henry Moore immediately after World War II. Their work was characterised by the spiky, twisted forms famously described by the art critic Herbert Read as the ‘Geometry of Fear’. This  exhibition is an exploration of the period.  Moore’s Reclining Girl (1983, 12.5 cm), is in a bronze edition of nine. Other highlights include Kenneth Armitage’s “Children Playing”, Elizabeth Frink’s “Rolling over horse” and Jacob Epstein’s Portrait of Albert Einstein.  Prices start at £10,000.
