LONDON.- On 14 September the Dulwich Picture Gallery will unveil a new, permanent sculpture in its grounds. Walking the Dog by acclaimed artist Peter Randall-Page is being presented to the Gallery by the Art Fund to mark its 2011 bicentenary. It is the first contemporary sculpture to be acquired for Dulwich – the UK’s first public art gallery. Peter Randall-Page has gained an international reputation through his sculpture, drawings and prints. Novelist, historian and academic Marina Warner has written extensively on his work. To celebrate this work we’re giving to Dulwich, she shares with us some extracts from a piece she wrote in 2009: “Peter Randall-Page makes one body of pleasure after another – it was this strand in his work that first captured my admiration and inspired joy in me when in the Eighties at the Contemporary Art Society annual show, I saw the series of antic, almost absurdist, dancing bronze figurines
