‘Nude Girl’ by Ernest Schaufelberg

Mr Bradshaw and I were wandering in the streets around Covent Garden, and in Russell Street is The Fortune Theatre opened in 1924, the first theatre to be built in London after WWI. Mr Bradshaw could not have known the theatre, an art deco building designed by Ernest Schaufelberg, who also sculpted this lovely figure on the side of the building.
