Tate Britain, Millbank, London, UK.


Eve
A sculpture entitled ‘Eve’ by Thomas Brock, whose works include the Imperial Memorial in front of Buckingham Palace and the gilded figure of Albert at the Albert Memorial. Victoria & Albert Museum, London.
‘Brock exhibited this life-size female nude as a plaster cast at the Royal Academy in 1898. He completed the marble in the following year, and showed it at the Paris Universal Exhibition. Critics praised its combination of naturalism and spiritualism, as well its subtlety in modelling and expression of feeling. Unusually, Eve is not presented as a temptress. Instead she is shown as self-absorbed, her head bowed as if in shame and her left arm placed protectively across her chest. Brock also produced a number of smaller bronze replicas of this subject.’
