“It was a connection which Robert Simon developed with the sculptor in the early 1960’s. I helped the artist in the making of his lithographic drawings which were done on grained zinc plate using a felt tipped pen and volatile ink (not water based ) They were drawn quickly and reflected the ideas he was involved with in sculpture ,but were alternatives not copies of existing works .Yes , movement was an element he was particularly interested in at that time.” Stanley Jones MBE, master lithographer.

The Artist

Oliffe Richmond

Robert Oliffe Gage Richmond (1919–77), internationally acclaimed expatriate sculptor, was born in Hobart and studied art at the Hobart Technical College from 1937 to 1941. At ballet classes and wrestling matches he observed the stresses and tensions of human bodies in exertion. Henceforth physicality informed all his work. From 1945 he studied sculpture with Lyndon Dadswell at East Sydney Technical College and in 1948 won a scholarship and moved to England. He intermittently assisted Henry Moore until 1956, when he became lecturer at the Chelsea School of Art. In the 1960s his mature style of disturbing bronze figures fitted into the British post-war humanist traditions, but later he combined machined aluminium parts into more abstract constructions which retain human echoes. So do his last works, towering anthropomorphic presences of laminated woods and bolted timbers.
