I’m kicking off this post with a London sculpture that caught my eye earlier this year – a man in his everyday rush to grab a taxi. Cee has a similar man in her post this week, which prompted me to share this image. A bit of googling revealed that this London statue is by the same artist as the one in Portland, Oregon. They are the work of J Seward Johnson, a man who specialised in creating bronze statues of people engaged in day-to-day activities.
American by J Seward Johnson, London, January 2020
In contrast with American, here’s someone looking rather more relaxed.
Bacchus at Vatican City, October 2019
And here are some more statues of men in varied states of activity and inactivity.
