Vauxhall Bridge Revisited

Continuing from the descriptiopns of the up-stream sculptures on Vauxhall Bridge (below, November 13, 2009), those on the down-stream side are by Alfred Drury (1859 – 1944).

Closest to the south bank is Astronomy, wrapped in her cloak and looking quizically at a globe held in her hands. Next is Fine Art, holding her palette and brushes in her left hand and gazing at a small nude statuette held in her right. She holds to her bosom a small leafy branch bearing fruit.

Then comes Education holding to her two children (one standing and one in her arm) and finally Local Government – surely the only statue of this subject in Britain?
