Bust of King George V

1935

Kathleen Scott

Acquired by Queen Mary from Kathleen Scott (Lady Kennet), 26 June 1935

 

Although often overshadowed by the fame of her husband, Kathleen Scott was a significant sculptor, most notably for her portraits of the great men of her day. This bust, a reduction of a life-size bust commissioned by the Hearts of Oak Society for their London offices, was sent to Queen Mary by Kathleen Scott. The King sat for the bust in March 1935, and it was unveiled on 28 June of that year.
