Space Mirrors by Humphrey Spender

English, c.1960


Ref: FON3988


Humphrey Spender, (1910 - 2005) was a photographer, photo-journalist, artist and textile designer who made his name during the 1930's as a young man photographing the housing conditions of London's East End. He is listed with the National Portrait Gallery. His brother notably was Sir Stephen Harold Spender, himself a poet and man of letters. Humphrey made this sculpture in the early 1960s.  Entitled 'Space Mirrors', this was an unusual piece in that it was not a medium Humphrey had really worked in and as such, is a rare survivor of a lifetime of creativity, photography and textile design and public commissions including a mural for the Television Pavilion at the Festival of Britain. This very stylish sculpture had originally been displayed and sold in November 1964 at the famous Redfern Gallery in London (who also exhibited the likes of Man Ray and Francis Bacon at the time). A year before his death, he was enrolled as an honorary member of the Royal Photographic Society.
