Mozart in London

In London, so off to find a sculpture or statue that was new to me.  Having tracked down a few works by Philip Jackson, I decided to look for his 1994 work of Mozart.  It is in a part of London where Pimlico meets Belgravia in a small triangle sometimes referred to as Mozart’s Square or even Orange Square.  It is actually where Ebury Street and Pimlico Road meet.

Philip Jackson’s bronze shows Mozart as an eight year old, the age he was when he lived on Ebury Street with his family.  It was here that he wrote his first symphony in 1764.  Being a fan of Philip Jackson’s sculpture, it was satisfying to find another.
