Frederick E. McWilliam HRUA RA (1909 - 1992) Backwards (1975) Bronze, 30 x 20 x 9cm (11¾ x 8 x 3½) Signed with initials and numbered 1/5 Provenance: A private Belfast Collection Exhibited: Banbridge, the F.E. McWilliam Museum, Sept. 2008 - Feb. 2009; Drogheda, Highlanes Gallery Feb - April 2009 Literature: 'F.E. McWilliam at Banbridge' 2008 by Denise Ferran, Illus. p.106; 'The Sculpture of F.E. McWilliam' by Denise Ferran, catalogue Raisonne No. 413 F.E. McWilliam felt impelled to respond to the events of the early 1970s in Northern Ireland, although he was living in London; the Banners series evoked a populace trying to find a way through this period, sometimes desperate, sometimes angry, occasionally comic. Forwards and Backwards, have a wry resonance even today.
