Ralph Brown at 80

The Early Decades Revisited
March 18, 2009

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.


Commissioned to co-inside with the 2009 exhibition Ralph Brown at Eighty: The Early Decades Revisited at Pangolin London, this short film sees Brown discussing his earliest work and influences offering a truly unique insight into the artist's overture.
