Robert Klippel modelling the head of Cliff Brown
05 Dec 1926 - 12 Feb 2019
After leaving the Navy Robert Klippel continued studies at the East Sydney Technical College under the Commonwealth Reconstruction Training Scheme. Here he met Marie and Cliff Brown, with whom he established a decades-long spiritual dialogue. When this work was created Klippel was studying under sculptor Lyndon Dadswell, whose influence is apparent in works from this time.
