Best known for his civic monuments, Alexander Stoddart is one of the UK's most sought-after sculptors, and since 2008 he has been Sculptor in Ordinary to H M The Queen in Scotland.
His notable works include 10 feet bronze statues of David Hume and Adam Smith, philosophers during the Scottish Enlightenment, on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, and others of James Clerk Maxwell, William Henry Playfair and John Witherspoon.
Stoddart has also been closely involved with sculpture in a number of newly built mausolea, and we are therefore delighted he has agreed to give a talk for the Mausolea & Monuments Trust.
Please join us for this fascinating look at current sculptural development in the UK.
Doors open at 6.00 pm and the lecture begins at 6.30 pm.
