The streets and public spaces of London are rich with statues and monuments commemorating the city’s great figures and events – from Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square and Sir Christopher Wren’s Great Fire Monument to the charming Peter Pan statue in Kensington Gardens. Executed in stone, bronze and a range of other materials, London’s statues and monuments include work by some of the world’s greatest sculptors. This newly revised book takes account of the many statues erected between 2012 and 2017, including those of Mary Seacole at St Thomas’ Hospital and Amy Winehouse in Camden.London’s Statues and Monuments is a fully illustrated guide to these artworks and their stories: sometimes surprising and occasionally controversial, but always fascinating.
