The Slingshot

The Slingshot

Sir William Reid Dick, RA 1878-1961

Bronze with black patina on green marble plinth

Overall height: 13 1/2 inches; bronze: 12 inches

The Slingshot, also known as The Catatpult, is a relatively early work; it was cast in two sizes. The large size version, 60 cm high, was first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1911. Examples of this large size cast are rare with only one example recorded in a public collection, at the Bradford City Art Gallery, Cartwright Hall. The mood was also cast in a reduction measuring 33 cm high, of which the present piece is a gnod example." [continued below]
