Public Sculpture of Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull, Paperback / softback Book

Public Sculpture of Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull Paperback / softback

Part of the Public Sculpture of Britain series

Description

Public sculpture reflects the history of a county and few other areas have Warwickshire's variety and vitality.

Coventry was one of the five largest and finest cities of medieval England and the celebrated exploit of Lady Godiva, one of the principal founders, has always been irresistible to artists.

Coventry's devastation in the Second World War encouraged much public sculpture related to regeneration.

Nearly all the sculpture in Stratford-upon-Avon commemorates William Shakespeare with Ronald Gower's masterpiece displaying French panache in its mixture of portraiture and allegory.
