The Sculpture Court

The magnificent semi-circular Sculpture Court with its glass atrium and marble floor provides a period setting for sculpture from Bradford's permanent collection.  The sculptures date from early to mid 1900s and include work by Alfred Drury, Thomas Havard, John Adams Acton and Francis Derwent Wood whose Humanity Overcoming War of 1921 dominates the space.

Please note: The recent inclement weather has created high levels of humidity and temperature fluctuations in the sculpture court, which due to it's open nature is hard to control.  This was putting the paintings potentially at risk.  As a result a decision has been made to take down the exhibition to ensure the safety of the paintings.  The exhibition has been replaced with a selection of fine sculpture from Bradford's collection of early 20th century marble busts.
