Seamus Heaney Portrait in Bronze
Flanagan's sculpture carries on the classical tradition of western art, but his work is firmly situated in the twentieth century. The power of his representations of individuals lies in his ability to convey personality and at the same time explore possibilities of form and texture in a way which shows concern for, and delight in, the potential of bronze as a material in itself.
