In 2009 the Whitechapel Gallery in East London completed its renovation of, and expansion into, the adjoining Whitechapel Library by commissioning a weather vane for its roof from Canadian sculptor Rodney Graham. The distinctive piece that Graham produced depicts himself dressed as the 16th-century scholar Erasmus, sitting backwards on a horse, reading Erasmus's most famous work The Praise of Folly. This meticulously produced small book examines the artwork and its themes, and explores the history of British weather vanes.
