by Peter Laszlo Peri (1899 – 1967)
Modelled in coloured cement (known as ‘Pericrete’), circa 1955, signed ‘Peri’. Peri himself described how, when he was making sculpture of a social type such as a street sweeper, he would “..show him not as a pompous heroic figure, but as part of our surroundings. I choose one of his characteristic resting poses, I have drawn my neighbour’s attention to another neighbour whom he passed a thousand times on the street, but to whom he never gave a second thought.” Extracted from Sculpture in 20th Century Britian – A guide to sculptors in the Leeds collections. Peri exhibited widely and
his works are held in the Tate, the British Museum and the Leeds City Art Gallery among others. Stock no.: 10163/GSO.
