Thanks Doug,

Yes, I could see how that might be a bit impractical! I have passed on your details and asked a colleague to follow up with you by email.

Yes please feel free to pass my email on to your art department. I would love to come and see the statue, however I am in Canada. I do intend to eventually tour to see all of the works of Bose, however I am still missing 8 of his works. So far I have found these in wales, Scotland and India. If you are interested, I also have the sketch and note books of F Bose, one of his original statues, his original certificate of graduation and a number of newspaper articles about the artist. I am happy to share copies of what I have if it assists you. Best regards.

No problem.

The sculpture is part of a photography programme, and so images will be available in due course. However due to the scope of the project, this won't be in the near future, I'm afraid. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.

You would be welcome to come and see the sculpture by appointment, and to discuss the work of the artist. With your permission I'd like to pass on your email address to the Art Department so that they can arrange this, or discuss further with you.

Many thanks again for your enquiry,

Thank you very much Sara for your quick response. I do see the other Bose statue in your collection "Boy in Pain" pictured on your site. If you are able to provide a photo or any other information regarding Mr. Bose, I would greatly appreciate it. I am happy to share any information regarding Mr Bose that may assist you as well.

Best regards

Hi there Doug,

I will pass on your enquiry to the art department. It may be that we cannot post a picture here due to copyright reasons - in which case, I'd be really grateful if you could respond to this comment and fill in the 'email address' box. Your address won't be published, but it will make it easier for our Art Department to get in touch with you about the matter.

Many thanks for your enquiry,

Would you please post a picture of The Hunter by Fanindra Bose. Fanindra was my father's uncle and I am searching for pictures of all his works to match his sketch books that I have.
