London, Gimpel Fils, Bernard Meadows: Recent Sculpture, February - March 1963, cat. no.13 (as Personage tres Important) (another cast).
After a visit to Florence in 1960, Meadows had been much influenced by the bellicose manner of the Renaissance figure sculpture in the city, and particularly Michelangelo's Brutus in the Bargello, with which the present sculpture is clearly linked. These strong armoured figures were a symbol of power and Meadows brought this sense of threat into the figure sculptures that he was to produce over the next four years.
