N04439 MASK OF PAN c. 1928
Bronze, 14×8×8 1/2 (35·5×20·5×21·5), on a marble plinth.
Purchased from the artist's widow (Lewis Publications ‘A’ Fund) 1929.
This bronze mask was cast from the marble head, ‘Young Pan’, his R.A. Diploma work (exh. R.A., 1928 (1491), and repr. Royal Academy Illustrated, 1928, p.119). There are minor variations in the treatment of lips and hair which are more crisply modelled in the bronze. Another of the six bronze casts was exhibited at the memorial exhibition, Leicester Galleries, January 1929 (11).
