Plaster of Paris Sculpture – Yolanda Sonnabend
This simple, almost naive plaster sculpture belies a real talent. It was fashioned by the late Yolanda Sonnabend, award winning artist and theatre designer, whose previous sitters included such names as Prof Stephen Hawkins and Steven Berkoff, and whose work has been on display in the National Portrait Gallery.
It’s not clear exactly who the sitter was for this particular piece, or if it was a self study or just conjured in her mind. One things for sure though. It certainly has a presence.
