VIRGINIA WOOLF

Location: Tavistock Square, London
Artist: Stephen Tomlin

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was an English writer and considered one of the most important modernist 20th-century authors. A bronze sculpture of the bust of Virginia sculpted by Stephen Tomlin was erected in 2004 in Tavistock Square, London. Virginia became one of the central subjects of the 1970s movement of feminist criticism and her works have since gathered much attention and widespread commentary for inspiring feminism.
