Dorich House

Dorich House was open today as part of the Kingston Heritage Open Day so I went and had a look around.

The main attraction to me was the house itself but I was pleasantly surprised by the collection of sculptures by Dora Gordine who designed and lived in the house with her husband, Richard Hare (the name of the house comes from their two first names).

Most of the sculptures are busts and almost all the rest are full figures, often of eastern women in yoga like positions, but the one that really caught my eye was this one in the style of soviet proletarian culture.
