Public Sculpture of North-East England

Public Sculpture of Britain LUP

The North East of England boasts one of the greatest concentrations of recent public sculpture in Britain, the most well known being the 'Angel of the North'. Public Sculpture of North-East England documents over 450 of these works with full details of their materials, physical condition, ownership and commissioning and also their use and interpretation at various times in history. From this emerges a fascinating picture of the development of public sculpture and monuments in the region and of the contribution these objects make to ideas of local identity.
