Don’t miss the free exhibition Cats, Dogs and Other Best Friends: A Selection of Animal Sculpture at the Sladmore Gallery, seconds away from Green Park and Piccadilly Circus.
Running from 16th November – 22nd
December 2020, the exhibition will display works from some of the best sculptures of the 19th century, such as Barye, and the 20th
century, such as Degas or Bugatti, alongside a selection of sculptures from contemporary artists.
Inspired by a selection of works spanning three centuries of sculpture, each piece depicts a renewed appreciation for the simplicity animals bring to our modern lives in times of upheaval.
Animals on display will include dogs, cats, sheep, cows, horses, rabbits, rats and chameleons. From the faithfully realistic to the impressionists, the contemporary to the independent, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at this must-see show.
Alongside the works, visitors will find photographs of the artists with their inspirational pets from the turn of the century. From the likes of Edouard Sandoz with his beloved Fennec Foxes, to the more contemporary artists Nic Fiddian Green’s with his horse George.
