Sculpture: Material and Memory

Times: 11.00–13.00 BST
Location: Zoom (online)
Tutor: Dr Richard Stemp
Level: All Levels 

Course Description: The Wallace Collection presents a remarkable number of sculptures which are rarely the focus of our attention. Many are small in scale – which is why they are all too easy to walk past – but on this course, we’ll stop to pay these intricate and preciously-wrought works the attention they deserve. We’ll spend two mornings looking at sculptures, focusing on the details which learning online makes possible.

Sculptures from the museum itself will be our primary material, enabling us to understand the diverse forms and techniques of sculpture, while also enriching our knowledge of the breadth of the Collection. These works will be put into context by comparison with some of the world’s more famous sculptures – ‘star guests’, which will be brought in to illustrate specific points, techniques and materials.
