Draped woman sculpture, North Verbena Gardens W6 - Hammersmith and Fulham

Cast concrete sculpture, circa 1959 by Karel Vogel, situated in an open space off the Great West Road. It was an early commission of the London County Council's Patronage of the Arts scheme, unusually commissioned to provide visual amenity in compensation for a major road scheme. The cast concrete is now cracking in many places, damaged by rusting structural iron elements, and past repairs are both unsightly and failing. A condition survey has been carried out, funded by local amenity groups. Funding is now being sought to undertake further investigations prior to planning for full repair.
