21 A carved white marble Medici urn late 19th century 93cm high on associated marble pedestal, 186cm high overall Provenance: Major Ion R. Harrison (18891952), Croft House, Helensburgh, Scotland Thence by descent, until sold Great Western Auctions, Glasgow, 15 June 2018, lot 821. The present vase is modelled after the celebrated Antique marble original believed to date from the first century A.D., first recorded at the Villa Medici in Rome in the late 16th century, and now in the Uffizi, Florence. The frieze is said to depict the Athenians gathered at Delphi before the Trojan War, as well as satyrs and a female figure, likely Iphigenia, seated below a statue of Artemis. Along with the Borghese Vase, with which it is often paired, the Medici Vase achieved widespread fame through the publication of engravings such as those made by Piranesi and published in Vasi, Candelabri, Cippi, sarcofagi, tripodi, lucerne, ed ornamenti antichi (1778). Together, the vases were regarded as being among the greatest surviving examples of Classical art, and were attributed by some early writers to the great Greek sculptor, painter, and architect, Phidias. Reflective of the Roman taste for lavish garden ornament, monumental vases of this type were de rigueur for any parterre from the mid -17th century onwards. ÂŁ15,000-25,000

22 A carved white marble Medici urn late 18th/early 19th century old damages 101cm high First recorded in 1598 in the inventory of the Villa Medici, Rome although there is evidence that it was there at least thirty years earlier. In 1780 it was removed to Florence and soon entered the Uffizi where it remains today. The vase was one of the most popularly reproduced antiquities being copied in marble, bronze, terracotta, alabaster and biscuit and was commonly paired with the similarly shaped Borghese vase. It is believed that the original was executed in the second half of the first century A.D. ÂŁ2000-4000

27 A pair of large and impressive Compton pottery scroll pots early 20th century, each with small circular makers mark 50cm high by 60cm diameter The Compton Potters Art Guild was started by Mary Watts, the wife of G.F. Watts the Victorian allegorical painter. In 1895 work began on the Watts Mortuary Chapel. Designed by Mary Watts, it was to be built from local clay by the villagers of Compton, near Godalming, Surrey. Mr and Mrs Watts were dedicated supporters of the growing Home Arts and Industries Association, a voluntary movement launched by Earl Brownlow in 1885 to revive the dying art of handicraft among the working classes. The idea was that young uneducated artisans should have their eyes opened to the wonders of art. They would be rescued from idleness, gambling and drinking -so the notion ran- during long winter evenings. Uplifted and taught how to use their hands with skill they would acquire a hobby to be proud of and develop this hitherto unknown talent, where possible to professional standards. The Pottery Art Guild continued from strength

18

to strength, winning medals at the Royal Botanical Society and the Home Arts’ highest award, the gold cross. Liberty’s sold their garden ornaments as well as hand tufted Donegal carpets designed by Mrs Watts. They received architectural commissions from Lutyens, Clough William-Ellis and Goodhart Rendel. Recommended by Jekyll, they made miniature versions of their pots for the garden of Queen Mary’s dolls house in the early 1920’s. The Guild became a limited company run by George Aubertin and continued to produce works based on Mrs Watts’ designs until after her death in 1938. The scroll pots are illustrated in the Art Potters Guild catalogue page 11 and came in a variety of sizes of which this is the largest.

28  A carved limestone plaque of a printer at his press by James Woodford O.B.E. R.A. signed James Woodford 1954 145cm high by 110cm wide Woodford was born in Nottingham on 25 September 1893 and started studying at the Nottingham School of Art, but his studies were curtailed when he enlisted during the First World War. After the war, he continued his training at the Royal College of Art in London, and was Rome Scholar in 1922-25. In 1934 Woodford created a monumental pair of doors for the headquarters of the Royal Institute of British Architects at 66 Portland Place, London. Woodford did some decorative work for the liner RMS Queen Mary, carving wooden screens and designing bronze uplighters for the cabin class smoking room. For the coronation ceremony of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, Woodford made a set of ten plaster sculptures of the Queen’s Beasts, each 6 feet tall to be placed at the entrance of Westminster

Abbey. He went on to make a set of Portland stone replicas which an anonymous donor presented to Kew Gardens in 1956. They now stand on the Palm House Terrace. In the 1950s Woodford made a set of reliefs representing the four elements for the Lloyds building in Lime Street in the City of London. In 1951 he made the group of bronze statues of Robin Hood and his Merry Men that stand near the gates of Nottingham Castle. The group is now Grade II listed as part of the historic setting of the castle. In 1962 he modelled a new version of the royal coat of arms for use on major public buildings such as courts and embassies for the Ministry of Public Buildings. He was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy on 2 March 1937 and a full Academician on 27 April 1945, and appointed OBE in the 1953 Coronation Honours. He died on 8 November 1976. This panel would have been either an individual commission or more likely, one of a set representing various specialist skills. James Arthur Woodford OBE RA (1893-1976) was an

English sculptor. His works include sets of bronze doors for the headquarters of the Royal Institute of British Architects and Norwich City Hall; the Queen’s

of Robin Hood outside Nottingham Castle. £3000-5000

The firm of J.J. Ducel was started in 1810 at Poce in the Pas-de-Calais. One of the leading manufacturers specialising in architectural fittings as well as urns and statues. Following the death of Monsieur Ducel in 1878 the Val d’Osne foundry purchased the firm’s patterns. The output of cast iron in France at this time was enormous offering a huge range of architectural and decorative pieces which could be selected from lavishly illustrated catalogues.

The modeller of this statue, Charles Bonnet, despite his English sounding name was from Barcelona. Much of his work was of animals and birds and many of his statues were displayed in the show garden at the back of the Bromsgrove works in Station Road. Most of the Bromsgrove products were produced in quantity, and were available to purchase from the various catalogues produced by the Guild. This rare figure does not appear to have been illustrated in any of Bromsgrove Guild’s literature and the only other known example of this figure was commissioned for the garden of Chequers, which was originally the Buckinghamshire mansion belonging to Lord Lee, who presented the house to the nation in 1917 as a country residence for the use of future Prime Ministers. It still stands on the lawn in front of the main entrance to the house. 89 An important life size lead figure of Hygieia by Bromsgrove Guild and modelled by Charles Bonnet early 20th century 196cm high The Bromsgrove Guild of Applied Arts was established in 1894 by Walter Gilbert who took over a foundry in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire. It was first involved with decorative ironwork, but the business soon expanded into a great many other fields. By 1900 Gilbert had gone into partnership with a Mr McCandlish and had taken over further premises in the town which housed bronze and lead foundries, as well as wood and stone carving studios. By 1908 they had established an outlet in London, and as a result of their most famous commission, the iron and bronze gates outside Buckingham Palace, they were issued with a Royal Warrant appointing them metal workers to Edward VII (an honour repeated two years later under George V). Unlike the majority of other contemporary English manufacturers of garden ornaments most of the Guild’s figurative subjects were modelled in the popular styles of the day. In 1921 the Guild became a limited company, but by this date some of the members had left to start companies of their own. However, the Guild continued to produce a variety of garden ornaments for many years finally closing in 1966.

Hygieia was a goddess in Greek mythology and was the daughter and chief attendant to Asklepios, the god of medicine. The cult of Hygieia started in Athens in the 600s BC, in connection with the cult of Athene, goddess of wisdom and purity. Statues of Athene and Hygieia stood at the entrance to the Acropolis temple in Athens. In classical sculpture she was often shown holding or feeding a large snake, (the symbol of Asklepion medicine).

Further research has revealed that Gerard was born on 6 February 1725 probably in the parish of St Mary Aldermary in the vicinity of Bow Lane, and christened at the French Huguenot Church of St Martin Orgars on the 28th February. He seems to have gone to Lisbon in Portugal around 1746 and then lived much of his life there. He then returned to the England around 1794 and spent his later years living at Wimbledon near London. His estate in Portugal was Quinta at Benfica, near Lisbon and later Monserrate near Sintra. A prominent member of the British Factory in Lisbon, he made a vast fortune, possibly relating to diamonds commerce with Brazil. He was possibly the Administrator of the Crown jewels and diamond mines of Brazil. He also possibly imported redwood and presumably had many other business interests. He seems to have been involved in the building of the British Hospital in Lisbon. He was also involved in a bank Purry Mellish & De Vismes. He is mentioned in the book ‘They Went to Portugal’ by Rose Macaulay.

90 An extremely rare Coade stone bust of Gerard de Visme stamped Coade, Lambeth, the back scratched with Gerard de Visme E** 5 1793 and with partial old paper inventory label 29cm high This extremely rare bust is illustrated in Mrs Coade’s stone by Alison Kelly, who states on page 139 “Another charming small portrait bust sold at Christies in April 1986. The name on the sitter was scratched on the back and difficult to decipher. He was Gerard de Visme, a Huguenot, and the piece is marked 1793. It is bronzed. Its provenance is unknown, and it is now in a private collection. It was shown in Henry Clay’s article in the Connoisseur, October 1928, pp 79-87, but he did not know who it was. Gerard de Visme lived at Wimbledon Lodge, South Side, Wimbledon, lavishly decorated with Coade stone” 56

In 1790, Gerard moved onto the Monserrate estate, near Sintra. It would appear that he was not able to buy the property at Monserrate due to laws forbidding ownership of property by foreigners in Portugal at the time. Years later Francis Cook, another Englishman, stumbled upon the ruins of DeVisme’s Palace and was able to purchase it. Francis Cook became the first Visconde of Monserrate. One rumour about DeVisme’s daughter is that she was the reason he abandoned Monserrate. He apparently spent much time isolated there and the speculation is that he carried on some kind of improper relationship (with a servant or another member of society). His permanent abandonment of Monserrate coincides with his reappearance in London with an unexplained daughter. In London Gerard appears to have been a partner in the banking firm of De Vismes, Cuthbert, Marsh, Creed and Co, which is recorded in the London Directory of 1797. Gerard is buried in the churchyard of St Mary’s in Wimbledon. He is noted as dying in 1797 having been resident at Wimbledon Lodge, Southside. A large portrait of Gerard, by Thomas Hickey, dated 1783, 10 years before this bust was commissioned, is in the National Trust collection at Tyntesfield, near Bristol.


A second copy of this portrait, presumably also painted by Thomas Hickey, came up for Auction 14 March 2012 in Australia (Mossgreen, Lot 49). There is also a small miniature portrait of him painted in 1794 by Henry Spicer (English, 1743-1804) where Gerard is noted as being 67 years old. This miniature is now in the Carnegie Museum of Art in America. Eleanor Coade (d.1821) opened her Lambeth Manufactory for ceramic artificial stone in 1769, and appointed the sculptor John Bacon as its manager two years later. She was employed by all the leading late 18th Century architects. From about 1777 she began her engraved designs, which were published in 1784 in a catalogue of over 700 items entitled A Descriptive Catalogue of Coade’s Artificial Stone Manufactory. Then in 1799, the year she entered into partnership with her cousin John Sealy, she issued a handbook of her Pedlar’s Lane exhibition Gallery. The firm became Coade and Sealey from this date and following Sealey’s death in 1813, it reverted to Coade and in 1821 with the death of the younger Eleanor Coade, control of the firm passed to William Croggan, who died in 1835, following bankruptcy. Coade’s manufactures resembling a fine-grained natural stone, have always been famed for their durability. Literature: Mrs Coade’s Stone, by Alison Kelly,SPA, 1990, page 139 £1000-2000

92 † After Jacquemart: A pair of bronze dogs modern bearing foundry stamp A Durenne Sommevoire 97cm high Alfred Jacquemart was born in Paris in 1824, the son of a locksmith. He entered the Beaux Arts on the 22nd September 1843 and became one of the leading ‘animalier’ figures of his day, regularly exhibiting at the Salon between 1847 and 1877. He produced a considerable number of public works, notably four stone sphinxes for La fontaine du Chatelet in Paris in 1858, and two years later two bronze dragons for the Saint Michel fountain. He was also responsible for eight lions for the Chateau d’Eau, and the rhinoceros in the foundry in the Trocadero. Jacquemart’s works were predominantly produced in two materials, bronze and cast iron. Examples of the former tend to be small desk and mantlepiece bronzes, but he also produced larger works such as the equestrian figure of The Great General in Chief of the army in Italy, which was exhibited at the Salon in 1864. However, the majority of his subjects cast in iron were frequently life-size. £8000-12,000

93 Attributed to Edward Physick: A carved white marble bust of Arthur Wellesley, the 1st Duke of Wellington 74cm high by 29cm wide Provenance: Removed from a house formerly owned by a member of the Physick family of sculptors. The Physick family of sculptors were first established in Cornwall in the 1760’s and for over a century the eldest son was always called Edward which sometimes makes identification difficult. Three busts of Arthur Wellesley 1st Duke of Wellington are recorded as being by Edward William Physick, in 1832, 1843 and another with an unrecorded date made for the Merchant Taylor’s Hall in the City of London. This bust is undoubtably of the Duke with his distinctive nose and mutton chop whiskers and is likely to have been made in the latter stages of his life prior to his death in 1852. Unusually it shows him in normal dress of the day, rather than in ceremonial robes or classically draped. £400-600

The following six lots of erotic bronzes by William Crozier, were formerly in the collection of Robert Skull who with his first wife, was one of the first collectors of contemporary American Art in the 1960’s. The 1973 Sotheby’s auction, “The Collection of Robert C. Scull”, of 50 mostly Pop Art lots yielded $2.2 million, and was the first single seller auction of contemporary American art.

104

William Crozier is a figurative sculptor who has lived and worked in New York for more than 30 years.

105

For many years William Crozier was represented by Richard Bellamy and Xavier Fourcade. He has had one-person shows at Xavier Fourcade, Inc, New York, (where a number of these bronzes were exhibited) as well as the Richard Hines Gallery, Seattle and Jason McCoy Gallery, New York. Crozier’s work was included in the 1983 Whitney Biennial Exhibition and is in the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The collector Robert Scull purchased one cast of each of his new pieces from 1970 to 1983 and all of the bronzes in this collection are numbered 1/9. Other bronzes in the edition have subsequently been sold at Sotheby’s and Christies contemporary art sale in New York in the 1980’s and 90’s.

Aching, 1981/82

Crozier’s public commissions include a monumental-scale sculpture of Senator Jacob Javits for the Jacob Javits Convention Center, The Korean War Veterans Memorial in Kissena Park, Queens, New York and a portrait bust of David Rockefeller for Rockefeller University. Due to the erotic nature of these bronzes we have not illustrated them in the catalogue or on our website, however photographs are available on request.

The following are examples of the terminology used in this catalogue. Any statement as to authorship, attribution, origin, date, age provenance and condition is a statement of opinion and is not to be taken as a statement of fact.

In our opinion a work executed in the style of the renaissance but not necessarily of that period.

Please read carefully the terms of the Authenticity Guarantee and the Conditions of Business for Buyers set out in this catalogue. Antonio Canova In our opinion a work by the artist. In the case of 19th century sculpture this indicates that the work was made in our opinion either by the artist or by a foundry or editor who had the rights to reproduce the artist’s original model either during the artist’s lifetime or for a defined posthumous period. (When the artist’s forenames are not known, a series of asterisks, followed by the surname of the artist, whether preceded by an initial or not indicates that in our opinion the work is by the artist named). Attributed to Antonio Canova In our opinion probably a work by the artist but less certainty as to authorship is expressed than in the preceding category. Manner of Antonio Canova In our opinion a work in the style of the artist and of a later date After Antonio Canova In our opinion a copy at a later date of a known work by the artist. In the 19th century this indicates that in our opinion the work was made by a foundry or editor at a later date and apparently without exclusive rights. Italian 18th century In our opinion a work from that region and of that date. Probably Italian 18th century In our opinion a work that is likely to be from that region and/or of that date but less certainty as to the region and/ or date than is expressed in the preceding category.

The term signed and/or dated and/or inscribed means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription are original to the model or authorized by the sculptor’s studio or editor but not necessarily from the hand of the artist. The term bearing the signature and/or date and/or inscription means that in our opinion the signature and/ or date and/ or inscription have been added at a later date. Dimensions are given height before width Condition of lots Condition is only noted in the catalogue where an item is severely distressed. Prospective purchasers making commission bids without viewing the sale can be given condition reports on any lot on request. It is essential for buyers to satisfy themselves as to the condition of lots prior to the sale and to arrange their own insurance cover against loss and damage immediately after the sale. Please refer to the Conditions of Business for Buyers.

For these purposes, “counterfeit” means a lot that in Summers Place Auctions Ltd reasonable opinion is an imitation created to deceive as to authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description of such matters is not reflected by the description in the catalogue (taking into account any Glossary of Terms). No lot shall be considered a counterfeit by reason only of any damage and/ or restoration and/or modification work of any kind (including repainting or over-painting). Please note that this Guarantee does not apply if either:(i) the catalogue description was in accordance with the generally accepted opinion(s) of scholar(s) and expert(s) at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; or (ii) the only method of establishing at the date of the sale that the item was a counterfeit would have been by means of processes not then generally available or accepted, unreasonably expensive or impractical to use; or likely to have caused damage to the lot or likely (in Summers Place Auctions Ltd reasonable opinion) to have caused loss of value to the lot; or (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the lot from its value had it been in accordance with its description. This Guarantee is provided for a period of five (5) years after the date of the relevant auction, is solely for the benefit of the Buyer and may not be transferred to any third party.

Summers Place Auctions Ltd has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Summers Place Auctions Ltd may require the Buyer to obtain at the Buyer’s cost the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the field, mutually acceptable to Summers Place Auctions Ltd and the Buyer. Summers Place Auctions Ltd shall not be bound by any reports produced by the Buyer, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense. In the event Summers Place Auctions Ltd decides to rescind the sale under this Guarantee, it may refund to the Buyer the reasonable costs of up to two mutually approved independent expert reports.

Some of these items require specialist dismantling and may not be available for immediate collection after the sale. Intending purchasers should check the status of these lots before the sale.

3. Before the Auction Pre-sale Estimates Pre-sale estimates are intended as a guide for prospective buyers but all lots can realise prices above or below the pre-sale estimates. Seller’s confidential reserves are set no higher than the low pre-sale estimates, except in the rare circumstance in which the reserve has been set in a foreign currency and the exchange rate has fluctuated. It is advisable to consult us nearer the time of sale as estimates can be subject to revision. The estimates printed in the auction catalogue do not include the buyer’s premium or VAT. Provenance In certain circumstances, Summers Place Auctions Ltd may print in the catalogue the history of ownership of a work of art if such information contributes to scholarship or is otherwise well known and assists in distinguishing the work of art. However, the identity of the seller or previous owners may not be disclosed for a variety of reasons. For example, such information may be excluded to accommodate a seller’s request for confidentiality or because the identity of prior owners is unknown given the age of the work of art.

11. DATA PROTECTION

of auction related services, client administration, marketing and as otherwise required by law.

(b) By agreeing to these Conditions of Business, the Bidder agrees to the processing of their personal information and to the disclosure of such information to third parties world-wide for the purposes outlined in Condition 11(a) and to Sellers as per Condition 9(i). 12.

(b) These Conditions of Business are not assignable by any Buyer without Summers Place Auctions Ltd’s prior written consent, but are binding on Bidders’ successors, assigns and representatives.

Sealed bid auctions differ from established auctions in that the bid left is the bid that will be exercised in full. Therefore, if you decide to leave a bid of, say, £900 on the lot estimated at £800-1000 and there is no higher bid (where two identical bids are received, the earliest received bid will take precedence), £900 will secure the lot subject to buyer’s premium and VAT on the premium. We will contact you if you have been the successful bidder to inform you of the lot or lots that you have purchased, so that you can make payment and make arrangements for delivery. We have had many years of experience dealing with both UK carriers and international shippers and are happy to obtain quotations and facilitate transport and shipping of single lots and multiple purchases to anywhere in the world. Bids will be opened on Thursday 22nd March; and sales results will appear on the Summers Place Auctions website. Please be mindful that we will have to process a large number of bids, which does take time. However, we will endeavour to get this accomplished as quickly as possible and will expect to have the results of the sale posted by the end of the day. If you have never bid in a sealed bid sale before, here are some things to be aware of as regards leaving bids for this auction: Every lot in the sale has a fixed reserve, (the minimum price for which the lot can be sold) and this is never above the low estimate, it can be slightly below, but in the vast majority of cases it is the low estimate. The highest bid (as long as it is on or above the reserve) will be the winning bid. This is the ‘hammer price’ that the lot will be sold for. You should consider leaving a bid of an odd amount in pounds, for example, rather that bidding £1,000, try say £1,004, as many lots have been bought for the sake of the odd £1!

(c) The materials listed in Condition 1(a) set out the entire agreement between the You can tailor your bid in ways that are impossible to do in a live auction.

This bronze frieze was recently removed from the world-famous Camden Lock Market in London, which is situated by the Regent’s Canal on a site formerly occupied by warehouses and other premises associated with the canal. By the early 1970’s the canal trade had ceased, and a northern urban motorway was planned that would cut through the site, making any major permanent redevelopment impossible, and in 1974 a temporary market was established. By 1976, when plans for the motorway were abandoned, the market

110

had become a well-known feature of Camden Town. Originally, the Lock was a market for crafts, occupying some outdoor areas by the canal and various existing buildings. It attracted large numbers of visitors partly due to stalls being open on Sundays, when previous to the Sunday Trading Act 1994, shops were not permitted to operate on Sundays. It is now the fourth-most popular visitor attraction in London, attracting approximately 100,000 people each weekend. Originally built as a horse

hospital which served the horses pulling Pickford’s distribution vans and barges along the canal, Camden Stables Market makes up the largest portion of the famous Camden Lock Market complex. Horses injured pulling barges along the canals would come here for treatment and rehabilitation. The Grade II listed stables now house over 450 shops and stalls selling a variety of items from the unique to the exotic. These panels which feature horses being reshod and blacksmiths in a forge were installed during the extensive renovations of the early 1990’s. Due to its size, the frieze is being offered in 4 lots, however for clients wishing to purchase all four, a single bid should be entered for the four and if the bid exceeds the total of the highest bids entered for the individual lots, then that will be the winning bid. Please see our website for videos of the frieze.

The following two lots, provide a historical link with the Cold War which existed between the Soviet bloc countries and the Western powers between 1945 and 1990. A clash of very different beliefs and ideology - capitalism versus communism - each held with almost religious conviction, forming the basis of an international power struggle with both sides vying for dominance, exploiting every opportunity for expansion anywhere in the world. Propaganda formed a major weapon, especially for the Communist bloc countries whose press was heavily censored and whose leaders, especially Joseph Stalin established a virtual cult demanding absolute belief in the ideals of the state. The figure of Vasily Ivanovich Chapaev, added to the roof of the Communist Party Headquarters and placed there shortly after the establishment of Communism in Czechoslovakia are a testament to the USSR’s attempts to indoctrinate the local population.

This rocket is part of the S-75 family of rockets which were developed in the late 1950’s in response to combat America’s long range bombers. The S-75 and its many variants provided much of the air defence of the Soviet Union and numerous other countries which adopted it. Perhaps its most famous moment was the shooting down of Gary Powers U-2 spy plane in 1960.

In 1950 a set of six statues were commissioned of which this is one. Each was carved from a two ton block of sandstone, and since Czechoslovakia had recently become a Communist satellite, they fulfilled a primarily propaganda role in glorifying the exploits of the October 1917 revolution.

It is now 25 years since the fall of the Iron Curtain and although those who lived through the Cold War years did so in a permanent fear of global annihilation by nuclear weapons, we now look back with feelings bordering on nostalgia. These two lots provide an unprecedented opportunity to acquire some rare icons all historically associated with

A rare Lavochkin V-751 experimental flying laboratory 1960 titanium, stainless steel and aluminium This is a two stage rocket with an initial solid fuel rocket booster which burned for four seconds and a second stage liquid fuel engine that burnt for a further 22 seconds. This enabled the craft to reach altitudes of 66,000 feet and speeds of Mach 3, the range could be up to 22 miles. £8000-12,000 353 A monumental carved sandstone figure of Vasily Ivanovich Chapaev mid 20th century 250cm high The following lot originally stood on the roof of the Communist Party Headquarters in Prague,

Given pride of place on the parapet of the Communist party headquarters, which later became the Lenin Museum, they were carved collectively by three of the leading Czechoslovakian sculptors of the time, Svata Hajerova, Irena Sedlecka and Ludvig Kodym. All three were awarded the prize of City of Prague and were Laureates of the State Prize for previous achievements. Of the three, Irena Sedlecka is the only one still living. She went on to become a well-known sculptor in the West.


Born in 1928 in Plzeò, Czechoslovakia, she studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and was awarded the Lenin Prize for sculpture before fleeing the communist regime in 1967. Her first private commission in Britain, in 1975, was from Kathleen Hunt of Walthamstow, for a 70cm resin statue of the Virgin Mary and the baby Jesus (The Madonna). She has sculpted many monumental portraits and busts since, including Freddie Mercury of Queen, now in Montreux, Switzerland; Beau Brummell in Piccadilly, London, and many in private collections. (Her statue of Mercury served as a model for the large illuminated statue that currently dominates the front of the Dominion Theatre in London since the May 2002 premiere of the musical, We Will Rock You.) Commissioned portrait heads include Laurence Olivier (she also modelled the huge head used for his appearance in Dave Clark’s musical Time at the Dominion Theatre), Donald Sinden, Paul Eddington, Richard Briers, Jimmy Edwards, Ted Moult, Bobby Charlton, Lord Litchfield and Sir Frank Whittle. In August 1992 her work was shown at the Czech Embassy in London as part of an exhibition devoted to the work of five distinguished Czech émigré sculptors. She has been married several times, lastly to the sculptor Franta Belsky, who died in 2000. In late 2010, visual artist Aleksandra Mir befriended Sedlecká. A series of interviews in the following spring led to the publication of a monograph on Sedlecká’s life and work together with an unsolicited proposal

of bringing the statue, now exiled in Montreux, back to London on temporary loan and to place it on the 4th Plinth in Trafalgar square. The idea has been met with varying reactions while the petition continues to gather signatures from all over the world. She is a Fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors. Vasily Ivanovich Chapaev 1887 -1919 was a celebrated Russian soldier and Red Army commander during the Russian Civil War. During World War I, he fought as a non-commissioned officer and was awarded the Cross of St. George three times. In September 1917, he joined the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party (Bolsheviks). In December he was elected commander of the 138 Infantry Regiment by a vote of the regiment’s soldiers. He later commanded the 2nd Nikolaev Division and the 25th Rifle Division. On September 5, 1919, the divisional headquarters near Lbishchensk (now renamed Chapayev in his honour) were ambushed by White Army forces. According to official sources, Chapayev tried to escape by swimming across the Ural River, but was never again seen alive. His body was never recovered, but the town where he died was later renamed Chapaev, and a museum was established in 1927. After the Soviet Union had been established, Chapayev was immortalized by Soviet propaganda as a hero of the Russian Civil War. In 1923, a Russian writer, Dmitriy Furmanov, who served as a popular in the Soviet Union commissar in Chapayev’s division £25,000-40,000 wrote a popular novel entitled Chapaev. Later, in 1934, it was made into a film Chapayev by the Vasilyev brothers. The movie became highly

Guy Taplin (b1939)

Goose Head II 1998 Patinated Bronze Signed, titled and numbered 2/25 20cm Guy was born in 1939 in the East End of London on the eve of World War Two. His love affair with birds started as a young boy, inspired during a country walk in Hereford with his mother. After leaving school he had a number of menial jobs before working as a bird keeper in Regent’s Park while training to become a Buddhist monk. In the park, Guy remembers “I used to look after the ducks in the park and saw all these decoy ducks in the antique markets. I thought ‘I could make some of these’ - somebody came into the park and asked if they could have 170

a few and it took off.” So, in 1975 he began carving birds and four years later he dedicated his full time to fine art.

He has exhibited internationally, and his fans include Joanne Lumley, Ridley Scott and Michael Palin.

His first show at the Portal Gallery was an enormous success and everything sold. His Essex workshop sits on a beach at the head of two tidal estuaries, the Blackwater and the Colne. Surrounded by birds and deposited driftwood Guy is in his element. Guy looks for wrecked boats, flotsam and jetsam, broken jetties and dunnage from passing cargo boats to make his sculptures. He finds that this kind of material has a special significance because it has had a life before he creates his bird forms. Weathered by time and the elements, each piece of wood bears marks that enhance his design, suggesting the outline of a wing or layers of plumage. His work is now also cast in bronze, bringing it to a wider audience.
