Madonna and Child by Jacob Epstein, 1950-52: A Wee wander

Whilst on a wee wander from Baker Street to Russell Square Gardens – the long way! – I took wrong turning and in the process  discovered a fantastic lead sculpture called Madonna and Child by Jacob Epstein. Located on an archway leading into Dean’s Mews, next to Cavendish Place you will find what is an eye catching work of art that is well worth stopping and enjoying!

I know most Londoners are so f**king busy that they aint got time to stop for a minute or two to appreciate a work of art. Look up, look down, slow down and appreciate what’s around you… it doesn’t hurt!
