The Public Monuments and Sculpture Association was founded in 1991 to encourage the study and conservation of Britain's public sculpture and commemorative and decorative monuments. The volumes of its National Recording Project provide detailed catalogues of significant sculptures, excluding works in art galleries and museums. Each book comprises an introduction to the region; illustrated entries on individual works arranged by location; biographies of the artists; and a glossary and index.
This volume covers eight boroughs - Croydon, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Kingston, Merton, Richmond and Sutton - and describes over 300 public monuments and sculptures, including works by Jacob Epstein and Eduardo Paolozzi and Grinling Gibbons's work at Hampton Court Palace.
