Description:
§ Frank Dobson, CBE, RA (British, 1886-1963) Standing Nude signed and dated lower right "F Dobson '31" pencil and watercolour 51 x 35cm (20 x 14in) Exhibited: Arts Council Memorial Exhibition, 1966. Other Notes: Frank Dobson (1886-1963) was one of the most important British artists and sculptors of the 20th Century. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s he built a reputation as an outstanding sculptor and he was an important member of the British avant-garde. In 1925 Roger Fry described his work as "true sculpture and pure sculpture ... almost the first time that such a thing has been attempted in England" whilst the critic Raymond Mortimer wrote that Dobson was " ... probably the best sculptor this country has produced for about six hundred years". Duncan Grant wrote of Dobson that he: " ...( had) a feeling for the female form that seemed to wrest it out of the earth and make its very earthiness not only monumental but sublime". From 1946 to 1953 Dobson was Professor of Sculpture at the Royal College of Art. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1953. A little browning around the mount but fine.
