Ralph Brown PortraitRalph Brown (1928 – 2013) was a sculptor and teacher, born in Leeds, where he studied at the College of Art, 1948-51, following encouragement at Leeds Grammar School and Royal Air Force Service from 1946.

Early inspirations included Henry Moore and Jacob Epstein. During his time at Hammersmith School of Art, 1951-2, Brown was taught drawing by Leon Underwood, followed by tuition from Frank Dobson and John Skeaping at Royal College of Art, 1952-6. After this time he became very influenced by the sculptures of Germaine Richier and that of Rodin.

He has been showed at Leicester Galleries and Taranman Gallery and completed many public commissions, including Swimmers for Hatfield New Town and Meat Porters for Harlow New Town.

Like Henry Moore, who befriended Brown and encouraged him by buying his work, Brown’s work is deeply rooted in the figurative tradition. Often figures in motion, and if they sometimes appear awkward they are always infused with a strong sense of passion and humanity.

His work can be found in many public collections including the Arts Council of Great Britain, Bristol City Art Gallery, Leeds City Art Gallery, The National Museum of Wales and the Tate Gallery, London.
