NARRATOR: Artist, Eileen Agar revisited a theme when making this blindfolded sculpture, which she called 'Angel of Anarchy'. Her first sculpture with this title, from 1937, used her future husband Joseph Bard as it's subject. EILEEN AGAR: Well it was much more realistic, it looked like a head. People used to say, “Well it looks a bit like your husband”, you see. So that it was covered not in that fantastic way, you could see the eyes, the nose, but I covered it with doily papers. NARRATOR: The turmoil of World War II meant that the original 'Angel of Anarchy' was lost when it was sent abroad for an exhibition. Undeterred Agar reworked her concept to produce the markedly different piece you see here. EILEEN AGAR: And then, when I discovered that something had happened to it in Amsterdam, or when the war broke out, I thought “Well the only thing to do is to do a second one”. Because for some unknown reason, they’d sent me two, the people who make the model, I had a model of it in clay, but they had to make it in plaster, you see. They made it in plaster and I thought “oh my, that’s horrible. That white thing, it looks like a desk sculpture or something.” So I covered it with whatever I could find. But this is one that they chose for the Tate. They wouldn’t, I don’t think they would have chosen the first, so from that point of view it’s very good, because I never believed, thought for a second that they would be interested, even, you see.
