This replica features Henri Gaudier-Brzeska's sculpture “Dog”. A posthumous bronze cast can be seen at Kettles Yard House and Gallery in Cambridge.

Gaudier-Brzeska was born in St Jean de Braye, France in 1891. After moving to London in 1910, Brzeska became inspired by artists including Ezra Pound and Wyndham Lewis – key figures in the modernist, Vorticism movment. He himself became a founder member of the London Group and developed his distinctive carving style over the next few years. This sculpture is thought to be one of the last before his enlistment in the French army at the outbreak of World War I, when his life and career were tragically cut short at the age of 23, in 1915.

“It might be thought simple to make a sculpture like “Dog” by H. Gaudier-Brzeska, but so far as I know no one had done so in the whole world of sculpture, nor is it like any other sculptor’s work. It is essentially sculpture and at the same time is deeply realistic. I have known a child take it to bed instead of his “Teddy Bear’. (Jim Ede 1984, A Way of Life).
