Bust of Mr Albert Pountney by Mary Milner Dickens
A very accomplished bronzed patinated plaster bust of Mr Albert Pountney, better known as ‘Pont’ – always good to put a name to a face. It possesses a great look and would sit marvellously well in a cabinet or on a sideboard. Albert was a contemporary and teacher of Mary Milner Dickens. The bust was exhibited in the ‘Routes from Roots’ exhibition in 1987.
Mary Milner Dickens - a little info on this talented artist - As a sculptor her versatility is founded upon the broad education she received at a number of eminent institutions during the 1950s and 1960s. She acquired the traditional skills of modelling, carving, drawing and lettering at the Royal College of Art and Leicester College of Art, while her time studying for a Masters degree in Fine Art at Cornell University in the United States exposed her to a variety of new technological processes and alternative media. She also spent two years at the British School in Rome and won the prestigious Prix de Rome for Sculpture in 1957.
