Work begins on Leaning Woman Statue

We are delighted to confirm that restoration work will begin on the Leaning Woman Statue on 7 May. This important 1959 statue by Czech sculptor Dr Karel Vogel was commissioned as part of the LCC’s post-War Patronage of the Arts Scheme but in recent years it had been deteriorating with its armature corroding.


We are hugely grateful to all the members of the public, the St Peters’ Residents Association and Hammersmith & Fulham Council for supporting the project and we are excited to see work starting.


Young people will continue to be involved through our Proud Places youth engagement programme.


Work will take place through May and June and we will have a public launch with the local community in July 2024.


There will be opportunities for supporters of this project to come and visit the conservators, Sally Strachey Conservation, at work and please be in touch with us direct on if you would like us to contact you.
