Remembered Today:

Rainbow Division memorial for Fere en Tardenois

I chanced to visit the Royal Academy, in Piccadilly, today, and was amazed to see a huge WWI memorial standing just outside the entrance.

It is a very moving sculpture of an American soldier carrying a near-naked dead companion, and is apparently destined to be installed at Croix Rouge Farm, Fere en Tardenois.

I am not sure how long it will be outside the RA (I see it was officially only until mid August), but if you're in London in the next few days, it's worth popping along for a look.

Here's a website about the sculptor and the making of the work.

Thanks Angela:

Interesting info about the sculptor and his work--a very eye catching piece. Also, the Foundation's website is very interesting and informative.

The last three images on the link in my first post show the statue where I saw it, outside the Royal Academy. It's larger than life, and really impressive.

EDIT

I see that the memorial is due to be unveiled at Croix Rouge Farm on 12 November 2011.
