In the first exhibition of its kind in over 30 years, Modern British Sculpture at the Royal Academy of Art will present significant works of the twentieth century, exploring them thematically and in relation to the wider world. Displaying creations by the most significant sculptors in recent history, including Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth and Damien Hirst, the exhibition looks at the influence of international art on British artists, as well as the choices they have made in their own work. While not claiming to provide a comprehensive study of sculpture, the Academy seeks to illustrate a visual argument about the history of the individual pieces.

Although chronologically displayed, Modern British Sculpture does not aim to be a comprehensive survey of the topic. The juxtaposition of pieces, such as Queen Victoria by Alfred Gilbert, sculptor of Eros, with Philip King’s Genghis Khan illustrates the relationship between artists of different eras and the recurrence of significant themes throughout history. The visual juxtaposition is clear, Gilbert’s intricate statue apparently at odds with King’s simple lines; yet the theme and the sentiments of power and authority are highly evident in both. Further displays illustrate debates over sculpture as commemoration or political statement, no more clearly than in the placement of Edwin Lutyens’ Cenotaph and Cycle of Life by Jacob Epstein in the opening position.

The Royal Academy itself has played a significant role in the work of British sculptors, a fact that is not overlooked; works by three former presidents, Frederic Leighton, Charlie Wheeler and Philip King are included within the exhibition. Alongside the British art of Empire, those pieces from 1910 to 1930, the Academy has a number of loans that demonstrate a fascination many artists had with international (particularly non-Western art) often displayed the British Museum. Inspiration is most surely evident in Totem to the Artist by Leon Underwood, as well as in the works of Henry Moore.
