George Bradley Innes
Active: 1933 - 1970
Country of birth and death: Scotland
Innes studied at Glasgow School of Art but was expelled 'reputedly owing to the avant-garde nature of his work.' The majority of his work was carved in stone. However his output was severely limited due to war injuries: ‘I can neither stand, sit, not lie on my back without pain, said to be the result of shock as a result of being blown out of tanks twice and burned.’ (letter from George B. Innes, to George Buchanan, Curator of Art, Corporation of Glasgow Art Gallery and Museum, Kelvingrove, 10 April 1957.)
Information from Jane Eckett, 'Modernist Sculpture in Australia: Group of Four, Centre Five and the Europeans', doctoral thesis, University of Melbourne, begun 2009.
