T03333 SKETCH FOR THE LEVERHULME MEMORIAL c.1928

Not inscribed
Bronze, 6 1/2 × 4 5/8 × 3 (17 × 12 × 7.5) on a wooden base
Presented by the artist's widow 1981

The presence of a woman with a child and a figure holding a book suggests that this is a sketch made by the sculptor whilst working towards the group of four figures which forms part of the Leverhulme Memorial (see T03331). Two of the four figures, Charity and Education, hold a baby and a book respectively, but in the finished work the figures are the other way round, with Charity on the left.
