Description

Charoux was born in Vienna, but settled in England in 1935. While in Austria he executed a number of public monuments and indeed a feeling of monumentality, often combined with tranquility, exists in all his work. Charoux stated (letter of late February 1953 to the museum) that this piece is a unique cast. His move to England from Austria in the thirties gave him a spiritual rebirth and enabled him to work without fear of political persecution.
