The Dancers 1930s

George Alfred Holman (1911–1980)

Southend Museums Service
Sculptor and medallist, his talent was early spotted at school. Studied art at Hornsey School of Art under the sculptor Harold Youngman, 1927–34, after Hackney School of Art, 1925–27. Exhibited at RA and other London provincial galleries. Holman’s sculpture has a feeling of mass and solidity, as in his Boy and Duck, illustrated in Eric Newton’s monograph British Sculpture 1944–1946. Southgate Borough Council commissioned a bas-relief in stone for Broomfield Park. Lived at Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.
