royallMany British galleries are focusing on British Sculpture this year and the Royal Academy in London is no exception. The first exhibition in over 30 years showcasing 20th century British Sculpture, Modern British Sculpture, open to promising reviews over the weekend.

An increase in auction house sculpture sales may be realised, some believe, since there are many other exhibitions, showcasing sculpture, running at the same time. Many new buyers are recognizing says Frances Christie, one of Sotheby’s directors, that sculpture creates the same impact as a painting.
