LOUIS OSMAN Cavendish Square Architectural Model
Made by Louis Osman in 1950

War damage to Palladian houses in Cavendish Square, London owned by the Sisters of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus needed restoration and the 33 year old Louis Osman took it on. This wood model of his design for a bridge linking Nos. 12 and 13 was actually sent to Rome for approval. (It was delayed in customs for some weeks). The statue of the Madonna and Child was by Jacob Epstein and unfortunately the original maquette by Epstein is missing from this model.
Height: 61 cm
Width: 33 cm
Depth: 16 cm

Illustrated on page 38 'Louis Osman' by Jenny Moore

Provenence: Acquired when Osman's house Harpton Court, Presteigne was sold by his daughter, Marie-Louise
