  • Description
    Francis Aubrey Shurrock (1887-1977) was perhaps the most significant figure in New Zealand sculpture of the early to mid 20th century. After undergoing a traumatic World War One, Shurrock emigrated to New Zealand. For 25 years (1924-49) he was an inspiring presence at the Canterbury College School of Art, forerunner of today's University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts. Students included Bill Sutton, Rita Angus, Toss Woollaston and sculptors Molly Macalister, Alison Duff and Jim Allen.
