Leaping Hare on Crescent and Bell
Barry Flanagan was an English sculptor born in 1941 and died in 2009. He is best known for his bronze statues of dynamic, often monumental hares which spring into life as well as other animals. This mercurial image of the hare has come to stand as surrogate for human existence and our relations to the animal world. His work is held in public collections worldwide including MoMA, New York, Pompidou, Paris and Tate, London.
