Frances Darlington was a British sculptor who trained in the 1890’s at the Slade School of Art alongside Gwen and Augustus John.
Nearly a century later her great, great niece, Louise Marchal, a contemporary artist with a lifelong fascination with Darlington’s life and work will produce an art work in response to Darlington’s World War One Memorial, The St. George’s Police Orphanage World War One memorial (1918) held by Ripon’s Prison and Police Museum.
Marchal’s piece, an installation, will also commemorate the World War One centenary. Noble Bloods will be shown alongside Frances Darlington’s Memorial Sculpture in the chapel at Ripon’s Prison and Police Museum (St. Marygate, Ripon HG4 1LX) from Saturday 16 August to Monday 30 November, 2014.
