In 1938 Sigmund Freud's collection of sculptures was transferred from Vienna to London, where it is now preserved at the Freud Museum. On the 150th anniversary of his birth, Freud's Sculpture presented a unique opportunity to look at the Austrian neurologist's favourite sculptures and address their context.
In this publication, Jon Wood examines the presentation of the sculpture, Michael Molnar revisits the etching made by Max Pollak in 1914 of Freud sitting at his desk in the company of some of his sculptures, and Ivan Ward addresses the significance of Freud's chair and desk.
The catalogue also reproduces a number of period and recent photographs, and includes short entries for all of the sculptures on display.
