Meditation by Willi Soukop

Willi Soukop, Meditation, 1969, (terracotta on wooden base)

A woman's head, simple and tender.

This sculpture is part of the Ancestors series, an installation at the Royal Academy of Art.

Born in Vienna, Soukop studied at the Academy of Fine Art there from 1928-34. In 1934 he left Austria and came to Britain, living and working at Dartington Hall, near Totnes. He exhibited his sculpture widely and regularly sent work to the RA Summer exhibitions.
