History

History:The sculpture was carved by Julian Phelps Allan OBE FRBS, who won the Gold Medal of The Royal Academy in 1925.
In 1938 she wrote ''I am now working on what will be a 20ft figure for the new St Dunstan's Convalescent Home which is being built outside Brighton. This is a ‘Winged Victory’ holding the insignia of St Dunstan's. It is rather an adventure, especially as no one knows whether the floor of my studio will hold it! ''
In 1974, she was registered blind and before the end of her long life she became very deaf. She died on 31 January 1996, aged 103.
