Alfred Horace (Gerry) Gerrard

BORN:
7th May 1899

EARLY LIFE:
Born into a farming family in Hartford, Cheshire 1899, Alfred was the youngest of five children. During the First World War, he served with the Cameron Highlanders, the Black Watch, the Gordan Highlanders and the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) from 1917. In the RFC, Gerrard flew as a night bomber pilot where he crashed and injured his back on an occasion where his undercarriage fell off.

EDUCATION:
After the accident, Gerrard was demobilized and studied at the Manchester School of Art in 1919 and at the Slade School of Fine Art from 1920.

CAREER:
In 1925, Gerrard was appointed the head of the Slade School of Fine Art’s sculpture department, a position he held until 1948 after which he became Professor of Sculpture until 1968. During the Second World War, Gerrard was badly injured and almost had his arm amputated but managed to persuade the doctors to let his keep it so he could continue to sculpt. During a long teaching career, he influenced many artists.

EXHIBITIONS:
An exhibition of his works was staged at the South London Art Gallery in 1978 and collections can still be seen in the Tate Gallery and the Imperial War Museum.
