George Fullard

Serpentine Gallery 27 Jul — 18 Aug 1974 Free

This exhibition occurred less than a year after English sculptor, George Fullard, died.

Sheffield-born George Fullard (1923-73) studied at both Sheffield College of Arts and Crafts and the Royal College of Art. He later became a lecturer at St. Martin’s before being appointed Head of Sculpture at Chelsea School of Art.

His sculptures were largely devoted to the human form, though he also explored more abstract assemblages. He worked in materials including clay, plaster, concrete, bronze, and wood.

Severely injured during active service in Italy during World War II, Fullard is thought to have never returned to full health, resulting in his early death.

During his life, Fullard did not exhibit his sculptures often, so this was the first time his work had been brought together in sufficient depth to enable a survey of his career.
