Part of a collection of 15 works donated to 6 public collections in the UK and Yale Centre for British Art in New Haven, USA.

Alfred Turner was one of the most successful sculptors working in England in the first half of the 20th century, but by the late 1980s he had been almost completely forgotten, as has his daughter Winifred. His other daughter Jessica Turner has revived interest in the artists through the distribution of this gift from the artist's studio.
