Pangolin London presents a major show of the early work of celebrated sculptor Ralph Brown. Born in Leeds in 1928, Brown was the younger contemporary of the eminent group of Yorkshire sculptors that include Kenneth Armitage, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore. Like Moore, who befriended him and encouraged him by buying his work, Brown's art is deeply rooted in the figurative tradition. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, when abstraction prevailed in British sculpture, Brown remained faithful to the human figure and he has long stood out among his contemporaries as a master of human anatomy.
