Biography Ronald C. Moody
"Ronald Moody 1900-1984: A Reputation Restored"
Self-taught wood-carver Ronald Moody, a former dentist born in Jamaica, is revealed as one of Britain's most remarkable Modernist sculptors in a new display at Tate Britain, writes Guy Brett. His hands rest lightly on the massive shoulders of his sculpture Johanaan. The great head, carved from elm, stares forward as if into remote space. In a striking photograph of 1963, Val Wilmer pictured the sculptor Ronald Moody in his studio in Fulham with this work which he had made almost thirty years earlier. It is now forty years since Wilmer's picture was taken, and Johanaan is finally on show as the centre piece of a display of Moody's wood-carvings at Tate Britain.
