Mahatma Gandhi, Fredda Brilliant, and Tavistock Square, Bloomsbury: Literary London #16

On several occasions, this blog has mentioned the sculptor Fredda Brilliant - the wife of Lionel Britton's friend Herbert Marshall - and sometimes in relation to her being the sculptor of Britton's bust, which recently appeared on an online auction site. But this is the work that Brilliant (known as 'Freddie' by Britton) is most remembered for: the statue of Mahatma Gandhi in Tavistock Square.
