Plaque Text

An outstanding sculptor of some of Canada's finest public monuments, Walter Allward is best known for his masterpiece, the Vimy war memorial in France. He emerged as a dominant figure in the transition from the sculptural conventions of the Victorian era to the more abstract forms of the 20th century. Many of his works, including the Bell Memorial, combine expressive classical figures with dramatic settings. With his original sense of spatial composition, his mastery of the classical form, and his brilliant craftsmanship, Allward created works of enduring beauty.
