    Information

    I have spent sixty years, day after day working away calmly in my studio. I have simply followed my imagination… all the crises, the human ones that occur in life, and all the possible adventures and all the paths through the woods where you don’t know how you will get out again, they have all taken place in my studio. Hans Josephsohn

    Modern Art Oxford presents a major solo exhibition by the late Swiss sculptor Hans Josephson.

    Josephson’s powerful and imposing bronze reclining nudes, ‘semi-figures’ and abstract relief panels reveal a sensitive and dedicated examination of figure, form and plane.

    This extensive exhibition includes many works seen in the UK for the first time and focuses on works created in the last 25 years of his life.

    Strongly influenced by the work of fellow Swiss artist, Alberto Giacometti, the works are also reminiscent of Michelangelo’s ‘slave’ torsos and of the totemic sculpture of the Easter Island Moai figures.
