Physical Energy by George Frederick Watts

Physical Energy

Artist: George Frederick Watts

Bronze
1913
Height 50 cm
Gibberd Gallery, Civic Centre, Owned by Harlow Art Trust

Physical Energy was bought by the Trust in 1960 and sited in the Town Hall. It is one of a number of casts made by the Fine Arts Society and is a small version of the monumental work sited in Kensington Gardens, London on which Watts worked for 25 years. Another two large-scale casts of this work were made. One forms the Rhodes Memorial in Cape Town, South Africa and the other is in the gardens of the National Archive in Harare, Zimbabwe. Physical Energy was inspired by a commission from Hugh Lupus Grosvenor for a portrayal of one of his ancestors as a horse-riding hunter.
