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, and past repairs are both unsightly and failing. The concrete is also being damaged by rusting structural iron elements. Funding has been secured for a condition survey.
