"Daughters Of Odessa" 1/3 Life Size Bronze Sculptures by Frederick Hart

‘Daughters of Odessa’, is a breathtaking example of the artist’s oeuvre and the influences that came to define his later period. At first inspired by the tragic deaths of the four Romanov daughters, ‘Daughters of Odessa’ is an overall homage to the children who lost their lives throughout the catastrophes of the twentieth century – the Ukraine being the site of many, including the First World War, the Nazi invasion and Stalinist oppression. The sculptures depict four girls in diaphanous gowns with their eyes partly closed and arms outstretched, as if heeding a far away call. The work has promoted many, such as James Cooper in Frederick Hart: Changing Tides to recall Rodin’s ‘Burghers of Calais’, a seminal work in homage to martyrdom and existentialism.

Daughters of Odessa sculptures ‘Although they are standing quite still, there is a sense of joy, movement and dance, created by the artist’s brilliant deployment of gesture,’ Cooper writes, and ‘like Rodin’s Burghers, these figures are so perfectly conceived they have also been cast and exhibited separately.’ Indeed, each figure has been cast alone in bust form to create the individual works of ‘Innocence’, ‘Faith,’ ‘Hope’ and ‘Beauty’. Hart subtitled this work ‘Martyrs of Modernism’, as a response to the abstraction he encountered in much of the artwork of the twentieth century, viewing it as the antithesis to grace and beauty, two ideals he held in the utmost esteem throughout his lauded career.
