Arthur George Walker RA, Mrs Pankhurst

Mrs Pankhurst, ca. 1930

Arthur George Walker RA (1861 - 1939)

RA Collection: Art

This plaster figure relates to Walker’s statue of the suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst (1858-1928). The full size bronze statue, which was unveiled by Stanley Baldwin on 6 March 1930, is located in Victoria Tower Gardens, Westminster. Walker exhibited a bust of Mrs Pankhurst at the 1929 Royal Academy exhibition and a statue in 1930.

A.G. Walker executed many monuments and memorials to public figures, perhaps the best known of which is the bronze statue of Florence Nightingale (1915) for the Crimean War Memorial, Waterloo Place, London. Other public commissions include a Florence Nightingale memorial relief, Crypt of St. Paul's Cathedral, a memorial to Louisa Brandreth Aldrich-Blake, Tavistock Square Gardens, London and a memorial to Orlando Gibbons, Westminster Abbey.
