This has to be one of the most beautiful sculptures in the V & A museum. To be found in the sculpture court of the museum Crouching Youth is by Winifred Turner 1914. The graceful forms of the body are highly stylised and reflect Turner’s interest in ancient sculpture and dance. The flowing lines of the body are further emphasised by the smooth patina of the green tinted bronze.  But is most captivating about the work is the mood of peace and serenity that pervades the piece which is a result of Turners sensitive modelling of the features and body. This was my challenge when I tried to sketch the piece and tried to capture that same sensitivity and tranquil mood.
