Bronze Panel of Mercury by Gilbert Bayes
A large and heavy art deco bronze panel, removed from an art deco building, of a winged figure of Mercury. This is possibly a grill cover or panel over a lift door. It measures 5 foot 2 inches long (158cm) and 20 inches high (51cm). Apparently unsigned but undoubtedly by Gilbert Bayes from the art deco period. This panel is very heavy and in very good original condition.
Born in 1872, Gilbert Bayes was a sculptor whose work spanned the Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Modernism. He first exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1889, and then continued to work up to his death in 1953. Widely respected during his lifetime and President of the Royal Society of British Sculptors for many years, he was well known for his enthusiasm for public sculpture and for a close association between sculpture and architecture. As a result, work by Bayes can be seen in many parts of Britain, in France, Switzerland and Australia but he was above all a London sculptor. Major works by him to be seen in London include the Queen of Time clock above the main entrance to Selfridges in Oxford Street, the frieze on the Saville Theatre (now a cinema), in Shaftesbury Avenue and the large panel outside Lord's Cricket Ground. Most notably, the frieze on Doulton House on the Albert Embankment, the building being completed in 1939 and demolished in 1979. Other examples of his work are at the BBC, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Merchant Taylors' Hall, the headquarters of the London Fire Brigade and the Law Society. In addition, Bayes carried out many commissions for private clients, in wood, ivory, bronze, stone and concrete, as well as in ceramic. By far the greatest Art Deco sculptor in Britain, Bayes developed a characteristic style that is now highly evocative of its period. He was also responsible for more public sculpture between the wars than any other artist working in Britain, and so it is entirely fitting that his greatest, and most decorative, work should be on permanent display at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
