An exceptionally rare Geoffrey Clarke IronMan, Woman and Child; 1951
'Man, Woman and Child', 1951 is an exceptional, museum-quality wall relief by Geoffrey Clarke and is the largest and most significant available iron work from the highly desirable early career of this important British sculptor.
In 1950 whilst studying at the Royal College of Art Geoffrey Clarke enrolled on a two week course to learn how to weld at the British Oxygen Company in Cricklewood. Clarke recalled his first beguiling experiences of welding: "You are intrigued enough just by simply bringing a rod of metal to red-hot and bending it at right angles with ease. Simple things like that, and when you melt the rod it runs back on itself into a little head."
In the autumn of 1950 Clarke received a commission for a 20ft wide decorative screen for the Festival of Britain’s Transport Pavilion. Clarke designed a iron winged figure wall relief which he called ‘Icarus’ and was installed on the South Bank site in 1951. Both 'Icarus' and 'Man, Woman and Child' were constructed from plate metal salvaged from a disused Esso storage tank from Purfleet. Welded to the requisite thickness with the surface ‘acided’, oiled and then blackened with a smoky carbonising flame.
The authority on Geoffrey Clarke Dr Judith LeGrove notes: “It is possible to consider these two iron works as public and private expressions. Icarus was very much a design project, while the imagery of 'Man, Woman and Child' cuts to the heart of Clarke’s personal symbolism.”
