Modern and Garden Sculpture: After Charles WheelerA resin figure of Spring177cm highGerald Moore was a friend of Sir Charles Wheeler and the original bronze was gifted by Gerald Moore to his old school Eltham College and at that time this resin copy was made. Sir Charles Wheeler KCVO CBE PRA 1892 -1974 was a painter and who exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy summer exhibition from 1914 to 1970. ‘Spring’ was shown at the 1930 summer exhibition. The model was Marguerite Kelsey who sat to Meredith Frampton in 1928. She holds a seed in her right hand symbolising her personification. Flowers bloom in relief on her feet and are indented on the rest of her body. Wheeler discovered the model at an evening sketch class and said that she brought spring into his studio when it was midwinter. Other sculptures by Wheeler include the Jellicoe Memorial Fountain in Trafalgar Square and figures on the Bank of England building. He was President of the Royal Academy 1956-66.Part of the Late Dr Gerald Moore Collection
