725/7/10015 Woman with a Fish statue
Sculpture, originally a fountain. 1951 by Frank Dobson, Sculptor. Concrete, height 5'7". Seated woman with a fish, which originally had water coming out of its mouth. The female nude was a constant theme in the work of Dobson. His treatment of the subject related both the neo-classicism of Maillol and the study of primitive sculpture, particularly that of the East. This is Dobson's most successful public work and one of his finest late pieces. It was first exhibited at the second Battersea Park Sculpture Exhibition, in 1951, whence it was brought to Northampton. It was placed in this very appropriate garden setting in 1978.
