Girl with a Dolphin



Girl with a Dolphin

This is where David Wynne's spectacular sculpture sits.

Location: North East side of Tower Bridge

Description: Girl with a Dolphin by David Wynne 1973.

David Wynne (b. 1926)
David Wynne was born in London, and seems to have had no formal art training. His figurative sculpture concentrates on movement, and includes most notably Girl With Doves (1970), The Dancers (1971) and Dancer with Bird (1975), all in Cadogen Square Gardens. Other works in London are Girl with a Dolphin and Boy with a Dolphin, the latter being at the Chelsea School of Art. In the 1950s Wynne was concerned mainly with animal sculptures, and his Guy the Gorilla is in the Crystal Palace Gardens (Guy was the most famous gorilla at London Zoo).
