Biography  
Paul Morrow Mount


On one hand, the sculptures of Paul Mount displayed the cool geometries of classic modernism; on the other, something much less urbane - more like the firm-footed vitality of Yoruba wood-carving. Mount, who has died aged 86, created a distinctive fusion of these qualities. From his large, wood sculptures of the late 1950s through to his prolific series of abstract, cast-iron and bronze works from the 1960s onward, to the mirror-like pieces in stainless steel he was preparing for exhibition this year, he combined a passion for formal clarity with an instinct for sculptural power and presence.

Mount's quiet demeanour belied a prodigious creative output. He also produced architectural designs, painted, published novels  ...  Displaying 750 of 5399 characters.
